Comments on sustainability

Regeneration of trees in agroforestry systems are considered as an expensive measure by farmers because it has been done by traditional reforestation with high costs of plants and materials for protection of new trees from animals. Other  systemas are avalailbe for natural regenerations as summer exclusion of cattle or natural proteciont with thorny plants as hawthorns.
