I wanted to say that if you're to cut trees as forage you need to have a substainable system. In Spain the amount you can cut is sometimes written into the contractes of renting the land and in one point in history there was a rule in some part of the country that you could only take what you could break off with your hand, there can be rules about the number of animals you can let on the land. Another control can be tradition and what is considered good practice. You prize your trees, you teach your children what they can take without harming the future of the tree.
The dehesas, wooded farmas were the leaf of trees and their fruit serve to feed the live stock, have been places where absentee landlords kept miserably underpaid workers. agri rose macaskie.
