Joe Orefice replied to Scott Johnson's discussion Examples of Silvopasture in Public Areas Needed
"Glad to hear you'll be doing some thinning. I think one comment to the town would be the need to have animals to keep the understory form developing into invasive shrubs.  Reach out to the Savanna Institute, they may have images of burr…"

"They called it "silvo-pasture" at the 2016 "World Congress Silvo-Pastoral Systems". Just to bring in an international thought to this conversation. "
