Trees are an effective tool for a variety of purposes in any farm design, whether you are managing a lot of hectares or a small homestead.

  • Why you should consider trees in your farm design
  • The main challenges when including trees, and how to overcome them
  • How to plan, fund and establish trees in different-sized farms
  • What big farms can learn from smaller farms and vice versa
  • How trees could work on your farm (Q&A)
