The planting of widely-spaced commercial hardwood trees on grasslands grazed by sheep or cows makes it possible to reconcile a continuous farm income (by the production of grass for animal feed) and the accumulation of capital from wood production. With a limited number of trees on the parcel and adapted protection measures, this form of afforestation has a very limited impact on grass and pasture management in extensive systems. The investment in work and in money is only substantial the year when planting takes place. After that, it is mainly a problem of surveillance and maintenance. The general principle is to associate a regular income plus sheep or cow production, to a long-term income and the production of quality wood.
