Medicinal Trees

Agroforestry provides important habit for the cultivation of medical plant products that may be
herbs (e.g., basil) or trees (e.g., almaciga). Many medicinal products are derived from trees
and much traditional health care around the world is supported by their cultivation. The wide
cultivation and utilization of medicinal plants in agroforestry contributes to health support
systems locally and provides livelihood opportunities through sale locally and more widely.
