Agroforestry systems also yield proven strategies for long-term carbon sequestration, soil enrichment, biodiversity conservation, and air- and water-quality improvements, benefiting both the landowners and society. The benefits of agroforestry derive from the interactions between trees.

In order to plan for the use of these trees in agroforestry systems, considerable knowledge of their properties is necessary. Desirable information includes the uses described above; the climatic adaptations of the species, including adaptations to various soils and stresses; the size and form of the canopy as well as the root system; and the suitability for various agroforestry practices.
