There are a number of advantages in planting trees in grazed pasture. Livestock production from the land continues, with shade and shelter enhancing animal well being. Trees in the landscape add greatly to the attractiveness and value of a property.
If individual trees can be adequately protected from stock, then landscape considerations and choosing the best sites for the trees can be given preference. When planted in grazed pasture, fire risk and brushweed competition is eliminated compared to a non-grazed fenced-off area.
