What We Can Learn From Silvopasturing in Other Corners of the World

Posted by Brett Chedzoy on August 19, 2015 at 2:40pm 3 Comments

This forum unintentionally drew an initial concentration of members from the northeastern US, though many folks have since joined from other parts of the country and globe (welcome!).  Silvopasturing practices certainly need to be customized to the local area and situation, but the principals remain largely the same no matter where working trees and livestock are raised together in a sustainable manner.

Silvopasture Development Progress at Angus Glen Farms

Posted by Brett Chedzoy on August 19, 2015 at 1:00pm 3 Comments

I've had the best of intentions to be more active on this forum this summer to share my thoughts and experiences with a recent "low grade" timber harvest at our farm to promote silvopasture development.  The harvest wrapped-up a few weeks ago, and I just returned from quick trip to Argentina.  With that behind me, it's time to get some pictures and storied up about the project.  But first, as a bit of background, I've pasted below an article that I was asked to write for the current edition…

New post discusses the importance of preserving the wisdom of forest stewardship for future generations.



"….One of the realizations I’ve come to having worked many hours in the woods, is that forestry and agroforestry are inherently humbling practices, because when we enter the world of trees and forests, we have to look beyond years and decades, and start thinking about centuries. Many of the consequences of the choices we make (good or bad) in our lifetime, won’t be seen…

Silvopasture Talking Points for Skeptics

I was invited once again to speak later this month at the NY Society of American Forester's annual conference in Syracuse.  This will be my third time in the past six years to present on silvopasturing at this event.  I still wonder if it's because they're trying to decide if they should ex-communicate me from the SAF, or if there's real interest amongst foresters in the silvopasture and other agroforestry opportunities that abound?  I'll remain optimistic that it's the later.This upcoming talk…See More

Looking for black locust seeds & posts in Tioga County, PA vicinity

Hi, I just moved to Tioga County, PA and am looking for a some harvestable black locust trees for fenceposts. Having browsed this site, I am now also interested in seeds from "straighter than average" trees, as the silvopasture idea seems to make good sense.Does anyone in the vicinity have excess black locust which I…See More
