Fig. 1. In future, specific varieties of trees may be developed for silvopastoral systems. The ‘Millwood’ honey locust was selected for production of high-energy pods that potentially can serve as a valuable source of livestock feed (77). The pulpy pods contain up to 35% sugar, and yields are similar to an equivalent acreage of oats (67). Two management considerations include vulnerability to livestock damage and end use for the timber.
