Where Analog Forestry differs from other systems is in the planting design, which mimics both the structure of a natural forest (i.e. different canopy layers) and the ecological functions of a natural forest (i.e. watershed management).
|Agroforestry takes an agricultural system and puts a tree layer on it. The paradigm is agriculture. Such a system takes traditional models and simplifies them. In agroforestry, an increase in the production of crops and income generation is the desired goal.
Analog Forestry uses natural vegetation as its design paradigm. In an analog, the system is designed to bring about more complexity and not less. Analog Forestry has conservation of biodiversity as an equally important goal as economic gain. The model for design is drawn from the original local forest ecosystem.
Permaculture tries to create a permanent system of cultivation, but it doe
