Introducing multipurpose trees on small farms in Nepal

The introduction to this paper discusses tree growing by hill and terai (plain) farmers, giving details of the common and popular species grown in each area and their uses, with some data on lopping season and propagation methods. Land use categories on the farms are described and land availability for tree planting (including intercropping and silvopastoral systems) discussed. Farmer attitudes to tree planting are described.
