Emerging Agroforestry Opportunities in the Upper Midwest
Agroforestry, the integration of trees and shrubs into agricultural systems, is thriving in the upper Midwest because of changing farm economics, new plant materials, useful research results, and growing markets for specialty forest products. Shelterbelts, riparian zones, living snow fences, and short-rotation plantations all create opportunities for environmentally friendly profit. Agroforestry's transdisciplinary nature requires partnerships, however, and although more landowners are practicing agroforestry, today's scattered installations need to be integrated into a systems approach if agricultural landscape management is to improve.
