Summary in the original language of the document

The guide explains why it is important to plant tree in the outdoor run for chickens. Then, every step of implementation is described: space arrangement, inventory of soil and climate conditions, economics aspects, etc.
Several tree designs show diverse possibilities to create the most adapted system for every situation. In addition, tree-planting rules are provided, i.e. tree varieties, soil preparation, mulch, planting, tree protection, tree maintenance, etc.
This tool is not specific for organic farming and is relevant for any farmer who would like to integrate trees into their outdoor poultry run.
