Gary Bentrup, a Research Landscape Planner with the USDA's National Agroforestry Center, explains agroforestry's role within climate change. Agroforestry includes practices such as silvopasture, riparian forest buffers, wind breaks and forest farming. It is a holistic approach to land management that often boosts plant diversity within the landscape and results in the diversification of income among other benefits.
