That's true.  The original idea came from someone in Sweden (I think)
and it didn't seem unreasonable. There has always been problem with
communication skills in this field. Foresters I have known seem more
concerned and bett at "doing it" as opposed to "talking about it". 
However, this is up to the agroforestry people as well.  If they don't
mind, I don't mind. Setting up a new group will involve a lot of work
and input from an occasionally quiet group. The taxonomic set up of
Usenet ought to have put a general forestry group ahead of agroforestry,
but there probably wasn't a need at the time.
