Abstract

Although peasant communities in northwestern Andean Peru have a tree (forest) management strategy, their weak communal organization has led to over-exploitation of forest resources, over-grazing, and soil erosion. Authors identify major tree and shrub species in the region, discussing their uses, suitability for agroforestry, and the landscape context in which they occur. They share recommendations for improving future reforestation programs, and they discuss genera suitable for forest areas that are grazed. - (SLD)
