Pacific Islanders were once among the most self-sufficient and well-nourished peoples in the world. Their traditional agricultural systems integrated trees with production, a practice known as agroforestry. This book provides practical guidelines for planting and using trees in landscapes, gardening, and farming. Information on over 300 Pacific Island agroforestry species is provided. Topics covered include traditional Pacific Island multipurpose trees and their uses, understory intercropping, land rehabilitation, expanding traditional agroforests, nontimber forest products, windbreak design, timber and fruit production, financial analysis for agroforestry, and more.
