Permalink Policy Recommendations Offered for Agroforestry in England

The Soil Association and Woodland Trust have compiled a report with policy recommendations for Agroforestry in England that they presented to Parliament. The eight-page report looks at benefits, barriers, and opportunities for agroforestry. According to the report, agroforestry has the "potential to deliver multiple benefits for productive, resilient, and environmentally integrated farm systems." The report features several case studies, including one from a free-range poultry producer citing better soil water retention, more biodiversity, and a higher quality product from planting trees on the poultry's range.
