100% agreement. Some one else in this line mentioned that agroforestry is a full
ecological management of a system where agro crops and forestry are managed as a unit.
We do this in Texas with game, cattle, timber, and usually a mix of other farming
(orchards, truck patch, etc). That is what my little company tries to do, manage for
the land, but we also need to show a profit, and live long enough to see the benefits of
Having a producing oil well on the tract usually is the best agricultural practice we
can have! Lets us do the rest.
