Agroforestry: A solution to farming's biggest problems?

In agroforestry, traditional farming of plants and animals is combined with the planting of different types of trees. It is much more sustainable than traditional agriculture, which takes a huge toll on the environment. In an agroforestry system, the trees planted around a crop can provide shelter and food for the animals, reducing overall greenhouse emissions. The trees also increase other wildlife like bees and insects, and they add more nutrients to the soil.
