Agroforestry in England: Benefits, barriers and opportunities

Category: News
6 June 2018

The Soil Association and Woodland Trust, together with a number of other organisations including ORC and the Farm Woodland Forum, have compiled an Agroforestry in England: Benefits, barriers and opportunities briefing. It is hoped that this will be a useful document that represents a collective position on agroforestry and can drive policy change.

  • Agroforestry has the potential to deliver multiple benefits for productive, resilient and environmentally integrated farm systems.
  • Agroforestry should become a central part of the government’s new farming and land management policy– clearly defined and supported in the Agriculture Bill.
  • Government should act without delay to support the farm advice, knowledge exchange and investment required to deliver a rapid shift in farm practice.
