Farm forestry incorporates commercial trees and shrubs into farm operations.
Farm Forestry takes many forms including timber belts, windbreaks, revegetation projects and timber production

Farm Forestry improves agricultural productivity.

It’s about which tree you want, for the purpose that you want it.
