Agroforestry: Wood For The Trees film 7

Tom Barnes, MD of Vastern Timber, is making a series of films dedicated to the future of British forests,  “where I try and balance my deep despair at the declining state of our woodlands with a healthy dose of optimism.”

In part seven, he visits a Somerset farm to discuss agroforestry, and discover how integrating forestry with farming could help meet targets to increase tree cover in the UK.

Find out more about the series on Tom’s blog.
