PAI Director silvopasture news

PAI Director Eric Toensmeier has two recent publications on silvopasture and climate change mitigation. Silvopasture is the combination of trees, grazing land, and livestock. It has very high carbon sequestration potential and is widespread but not widely discussed as a climate solution.

On May 30 Toensmeier published an op-ed in the Washington Post about the neglected mitigation potential of silvopasture.

And in June Steve Gabriel’s Silvopasture: A Guide to Managing Grazing Animals, Forage Crops, and Trees in a Temperate Farm Ecosystem was released. Toensmeier wrote the forward and a feature article on climate change mitigation.

Increasing the visibility of agroforestry systems like silvopasture is part of PAI’s mission.
