2016 case study on tree planting and farming

This case study demonstrates how trees can be planted on farms without affecting subsidies.

It explores the benefits that trees can bring to farms, such as shelter for livestock, combating soil erosion, warming the soil to extend the growing season and slowing run-off. And that's in addition to providing habitats for wildlife, attracting more pollinators and extra income through wood fuel.
