Forest management in the islands spans a wide range of objectives including watershed restoration and function, native forest restoration (often including wildlife considerations), invasive species control, timber plantation establishment and management and a variety of agroforestry systems. Agroforestry intentionally combines agriculture and forestry to create integrated and sustainable land-use systems. Agroforestry takes advantage of the interactive benefits from combining trees and shrubs with crops and/or livestock.
