013 Agiculture Meets Second Growth Forest

Agroforestry is an alternative to the next clear cutting occurrence that would most likely take place at the tree line. The encroachment occurs about every three years when the fertile ground plays out and the crops must be planted in new soil that is inside the forest. With organic fertilizer, probiotics and sustainable agroforestry methods the existing lands increase in fertility rather than decrease, allowing the treeline to remain.
