Agroforestry is the intentional mixing of trees and shrubs into crop and animal production systems to create environmental, economic, and social benefits. It is a unique land management approach that provides opportunities to integrate productivity and profitability with environmental stewardship, resulting in healthy and sustainable agricultural systems. Agroforestry practices can help accomplish many goals, including job and entrepreneur creation, bioenergy production, resilience to floods, droughts, and other effects of climate change, local and regional food system development, carbon sequestration, clean and abundant water, and the economic revitalization of rural communities.
