In many areas land is scarce and it is not possible to set aside a plot only for planting trees. In such cases trees can often be planted in ways that do not require a separate plot. Trees may be combined with agricultural crops or grazing, they may form a shelterbelt, or be planted along roads and rivers or around homesteads. The selection of species, spacing and protection are different in these cases from those described for woodlots.
