Afforestation and Silvopasture

Afforestation is the process of creating forests in places that are no longer forested. This could include planting trees on degraded agricultural or pasture lands and planting in urban areas. Forests sequester carbon in trees, soil, and other vegetation.

Silvopasture is the practice of adding trees to pastureland. Silvopastures can sequester carbon in the trees and soil and help counteract the methane emissions associated with raising cattle on pasture lands.
