Found in the context of a website plan. A kind of diagramme showing hierarchy, I believe (can't actually see it). Does an English word exist for this?
Many thanks

tree diagram, tree plan
Explanation:
I can recommend that you look at the entry in the GDT for this one. The word come from "arbre" (tree.....of course) as is based on the obvious image of the structure with branches and so on. Depending on a particular context, there may be a very specific term for it in English. From the indications you have given, "tree diagram" should work.

tree


Explanation:
Nancy:

The word used in web design is "tree", as in tree diagram. It displays the content of the web site much like an organizational chart, with the home page at the top and child pages below, in as many levels are required.
Good luck,

Marc

directory structure or tree structure


Explanation:
If this "arborescence" is describing the structure of the web site, then I think you can safely use one of the above two terms.
