Forestry consultant Stephen Adlard chats to Dr Fritha Langford, a researcher from SRUC. They discuss the wider benefits of integrating trees and agriculture, and Fritha explains how silvopastoral systems have the potential to allow Scottish farmers to produce sheep and beef to some of the highest possible welfare standards.
Later in the podcast, we hear from Prof. Davy McCracken, Head of Hill & Mountain Research Centre at Kirkton & Auchtertyre. Davy chats to Environment consultant, Seamus Murphy, about a recent plantation of 100 trees on inbye ground and the benefits these will help bring.
