Scottish government urged to help more farmers to integrate trees
The Scottish government is being urged to provide more support to farmers for integrating trees into their agricultural practices, as highlighted in an article on Farming UK.

The article emphasises the importance of government assistance in terms of funding, guidance, and incentives to encourage farmers to embrace agroforestry and tree planting initiatives. By promoting the integration of trees into farming systems, Scotland can enhance its sustainable agriculture practices, mitigate climate change, and contribute to the overall environmental well-being of the region.
