What is Agroforestry?
Agroforestry includes a wide range of practices coming from both the agriculture and forestry sectors in order to maximize land use and at the same time offer environmental biodiversity, economic and social benefits. The benefits created are maximized when trees and shrubs are combined with agricultural and/or livestock production.
In this section, you will find information on windbreaks (shelterbelts) and forested riparian buffers. Some relevant exemples carried out as demonstration sites in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island will be presented as well as several resources and links to other relevant websites on agroforestry.
