Tree Shelter for Livestock, case study
Publication date 2017
Publication type Case study
Pages 4

Read our case study on livestock farmers from across the UK, who were asked about their motivations for integrating trees on their farms.

A study by Harper Adams in collaboration with the Woodland Trust explored the operational and economic effects of including trees in sheep and beef farming systems. Farmer motivations include shelter for livestock, foliage for browsing, and for dividing fields to aid shepherding.
