Title: Ecoforestry in Practice, Part Two – Abel Kloster

In part two, Andrew and Abel discuss the ecoforestry practices used at Aprovecho to manage the forest there towards an old growth character forest. They discuss how this type of intentional land management connects to indigenous and climate justice. They also go into the history of indigenous genocide in Oregon and its connection to the landscape change from oak savanna to primarily Douglas fir forest at the site.
