Getting Started

We at Trees For Graziers are passionate about making silvopasture happen, whether we’re involved in a project or you run with it yourself. That’s why we’re all about education and giving you the knowledge and insights you need to take your grazing to new heights.

If you’re ready to make silvopasture happen on your property, here are the steps:

  1. Read the Grazier’s Guide to Trees. It’s the most comprehensive, step-by-step guide to getting trees established in active pastures that there is, and it’s written specifically for graziers. This will give you the foundational knowledge you need to get started.
  2. If you want our assistance in the process of establishing a silvopasture, we will be glad to help. The first step is to share some information about your farm context so we have some basic understanding of your context and needs. Here is that form.
  3. The next step is a phone consultation to dive into how silvopasture can be applied to your unique context. We’ll address any questions you may have and develop a step-by-step silvopasture plan. During the process we will determine whether you want to take on the entire project yourself, whether TFG will take it on, or some hybrid approach.
     
    This step is charged at a starting rate of $200, which includes:

    • Reviewing your questionnaire, pulling topo maps, soil maps, and anything else needed prior to the consultation
    • An hour of phone consultation.
    • Any additional time will be billed at $100/hour.
  4. If we determine that TFG will play a role in the implementation of your silvopasture project, we will then set the project into motion with a comprehensive plan, application for funding, sourcing materials, coordinating with a planting crew, etc.
