The Forest Garden Tour – Agroforestry and permaculture with Martin Crawford

The Forest Garden Tour - Agroforestry and permaculture with Martin Crawford.

From LondonTreeSurgeons YouTube channel. Agroforestry is a land use management system in which trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland. It combines shrubs and trees in agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, profitable, healthy,, ecologically sound, and sustainable land-use systems. Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centred on simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. Permaculture was developed, and the term coined by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1978. http://Wikipedia.com...

What is ARBORICULTURE? What does ARBORICULTURE mean? ARBORICULTURE meaning, definition & explanation.
Arboriculture is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants.

Businesses often need to hire arboriculturists to complete "tree hazard surveys" and generally manage the trees on-site to fulfill occupational safety and health obligations.

Over grafting apple trees – new varieties on existing trees!

Yes you can actually grow different varieties of apples on an existing tree! Over grafting simply explained - a must watch! Multiple cultivars of fruits such as apples are sometimes grafted on a single tree. This so-called "family tree" provides more fruit variety for small spaces such as a suburban backyard, and also takes care of the need for pollinators. The drawback is that the gardener must be sufficiently trained to prune them correctly, or one strong variety will usually "take over." also see - apple trees - fruit trees - pruning fruit trees - rootstock selection - trees & shrubs - wild fruit trees Grafting or graftage is a horticultural technique whereby tissues from one plant are inserted into those of another so that the two sets of vascular tissues may join together. This vascular joining is called inosculation. The technique is most commonly used in asexual propagation of commercially grown plants for the horticultural and...
