Silvopasture is an agroforestry practice that sustainably produces timber, livestock, and forage on the same land. Current technologies, such as portable electric fence and management intensive rotational grazing enable managers options not available in previous decades. A key need for many northeastern landowners who manage livestock is to economically and sustainably create shade in pastures by establishing forest cover.
