Pasture in forest practitioners tend to have higher uptake of climate-smart forestry practices?

Months ago I had read that woodland graziers tend to have higher acceptance of forest management activities: logging, thinning, mechanical interventions, prescribed burning, chemical treatments, cultural treatments.

Movable fencing for home-scale chicken paddocks

Do you use electric netting to graze chickens? Any tips or suggestions on styles or brands?I have various forest garden patches at home and plan to rotate chickens in between them. I may come back with questions on grazing plans, as some areas I'd want to rotate and let the pasture reset, whereas other areas I'd want the chickens to wipe out the lawn and prep it for meadow seed mixes. In any case, I want to have a few paddocks setup at once and move the fencing around.This is for a small,…See More

"Thanks Doug. It doesn't sound like the Trees for Graziers team does much pasture-in-woods work, they're more focused on trees-in-pasture. That's part of what motivated me to ask who else might be doing this kind of work in PA!"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (mrjamespollard@aol.com) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
