Volume 16 Number 1, November 2007

Agroforestry is the integration of trees and agriculture/horticulture to produce a diverse, productive and resilient system for producing food, materials, timber and other products. It can range from planting trees in pastures providing shelter, shade and emergency forage, to forest garden systems incorporating layers of tall and small trees, shrubs and ground layers in a self-sustaining, interconnected and productive system.
