JLA this is FASCINATING!!

Looking at the Bronze Age and other times, I have seen references that sometimes tree branches were cut as browse and kept (in the bottom of ponds as beavers do? I can't remember, sadly..) and fed to cattle to help them get over the lack of grazing in the winter. in the past agriculture was more all encompassing than now - but these trees which improve the fertility of the fields and so on are utterly amazing to me!

Very good article. BTW can't all the kuzo in the South be used for anything?

""Agroforestry the integration of trees and shrubs with crops and livestock systems has strong potential in addressing problems of food insecurity in developing countries. Done well, it allows producers to make the best use of their land, can boost field crop yields, diversify income, and increase resilience to climate change.""
These could be used in other lands also....This is a positive movement to the good of the earth.
