Photo Guide to Northeastern Silvopastures

I recently put together a photo guide to Northeastern US silvopasture. This guide is the result of research investigating silvopasture practices on farms in New York and New England. It is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to this complex practice but it should help inform folks about some options. Please feel free to share:

Joe,  Thanks for sharing the fruits of your and Leanne's labors.  Very helpful to have these visual illustrations of some silvopasture systems around the Northeast for those of us who need to "see to believe".  And good examples of the diversity of silvopasture management and applications on different farms.
