Only 13% of the UK is covered with trees, compared with an EU average of 35%.
Much more tree planting is needed.
Achieving the amount of tree cover required will need farmers to get involved.
Agroforestry, combining trees with agriculture, has many benefits including…
- increased biodiversity
- the possibility of fruit and nut production to aid income diversification
- the production of timber for building
- the production of fuel
- shelter for farm animals
- reduced soil erosion.
Cure your eco-anxiety with climate solutions. What is agroforestry, and how could it help save the planet?
From getting drastic on plastic to fighting climate change, we want to change the world for good. It’s time to make a difference.
