Silvopasture

The most common form of agroforestry in the southeastern United States is silvopasture, or managing property for timber, forage, and livestock on the same parcel of land.  It is designed to produce high-quality timber and, at the same time, provide shade and shelter for livestock and forage.  This can reduce stress for livestock and sometimes increase forage production.  This system provides cash-flow opportunities from livestock and forage production, and longer term income from timber.
