Hazelnut: These trees provide a nutritious source of nuts, high in protein and essential nutrients. Their dense canopy forms a protective shelter, ideal for wildlife refuge.

Pussy Willow: Known as a form of "tree hay," pussy willows are a fantastic fodder source. Their flexible branches and nutrient-rich leaves are excellent for foraging animals, especially in early spring.

Rock Oak: Sturdy and resilient, rock oaks serve as a natural windbreak, shielding animals and other plants from harsh winds. Their robust structure also offers ample shade during hot summer months.

Bur Oak: Similar to its cousin, the bur oak's grand stature and broad canopy provide a cooling shade in summer. Its acorns are a valuable food source, rich in nutrients for various wildlife.

Butternut: This tree is notable for its nutritious nuts, a welcome addition to any animal's diet. Its wide-spreading branches create a natural shelter, offering a serene and protected area for animals to rest.

Honey Locust: Unique for its edible pods, which remain intact without degrading quickly, the honey locust is a sustainable food source throughout the season. Its light, feathery foliage provides gentle shade without overly darkening the understory.

Benefits of Tree Crops with Grazing Livestock

Improved Soil Health: Grazing animals like cows, pigs, goats, and sheep naturally enhance soil fertility through their manure, enriching the land with essential nutrients for tree crops.

Natural Pest Management: These animals aid in controlling pests by grazing on various plant species, reducing reliance on chemical treatments.

Boosted Biodiversity: Incorporating livestock with tree crops fosters a more diverse ecosystem, crucial for the health of both plants and animals.

Year-Round Food Supply: Trees offer a consistent, perennial food source for grazing animals, cutting down on feed costs and promoting greater self-sufficiency in farming practices.
