Agroforestry systems are forms of land use or management in which tree species (fruit and/or timber) are combined with agricultural crops and/or animal husbandry, simultaneously or in a time sequence, yielding financial and ecological benefits. Agroforestry systems show that it is possible to associate the production of food and raw materials with the conservation of soil, water and biodiversity, besides helping reduce climate change. This type of system is a great option for recovering areas, as it accelerates ecosystem changes in comparison with natural succession.
