Seeking practitioners of tree and livestock integration
for a Northeast inventory



Are you actively integrating trees, livestock, and forages on lands in the Northeast US? 

Our team (Regenerative Design Group, Wellspring Forest Farm, and filmmaker Costa Boutsikaris) is seeking to inventory practitioners of any type and scale to develop and provide educational materials for tree and livestock integration (silvopasture) in the northeast region, including the states of CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, and VT. Funding for the project is through the National Agroforestry Center (NAC)

We acknowledge that the word silvopasture is relatively new, and pre-dated by many traditional and indigenous land practices that manage woody plants and vegetation for livestock or animals. We are interested in hearing from any individuals and communities who have experience with tree and animal integration, whether or not they use this term. 

As part of the project, we will be developing videos, case studies, and economic models for a land practice that can increase the health of livestock, sequester carbon, and improve on-farm resilience in a changing climate. 

To participate, please complete a  brief questionnaire with some basic information. We will not share any contact information publicly, and will only aggregate results in order to share a summary of the scope and potential of tree and livestock integration in the northeast. We will also seek to follow up with willing individuals to participate in the filming and materials development.

Dear Ashley, the questionnaire will not load in Explorer.  Other browsers do not support my need for black backgrounds.  I am happy to do it on a word doc or by phone is even more preferred.  (207) 338-3301, shanahanson@gmail.com
