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. Shade provides numerous benefits to livestock. This webinar will discuss considerations of site quality, species selection, establishment, and subsequent management of trees. The webinar is presented by Brett Chedzoy, Natural Resources and Forestry Educator of Cornell Cooperative Extension Schuyler County. Originally presented on June 4, 2014.
