The mission of the National Agroforestry Center (NAC) is “to advance the health, diversity, and productivity of working lands, waters, and communities through agroforestry.” America’s working lands — farms, ranches and forests — are facing increasing pressures to maximize production for a growing population while minimizing the impacts to wildlife, soils, water, and other ecosystem services on which we depend. The expansion of crops and other agricultural activities is generating a greater need for these production and protective services. Agroforestry — the intentional integration of agriculture and forestry — has tremendous potential to restore and enhance ecosystem services critical to meeting these needs.
