CIFOR: Center for International Forestry Research Working Trees » USDA National Agroforestry Center (NAC) NAC Home > Working Trees <a href="/" class="crumbStyle">Home</a> The Seeds Of Working Trees Trees have a job to do. Put them to "work" on your land and watch them do important tasks like improve water quality, control soil erosion, increase agricultural production, and provide wildlife habitat. The Working Trees concept was a fundamental step towards helping the USDA National Agroforestry Center effectively communicate the role that trees can play in agricultural systems. The Working Trees concept was the brainchild of now-retired Forest Service Lead Agroforester, Jerry (JB) Bratton. As the USDA National Agroforestry Center (NAC) began to take shape in the early 1990's, an informational brochure about agroforestry was needed. One of Jerry's favorite sayings is, "Working Trees really earn their room and board!" Agroforestry is not yet a common word for farmers, ranchers, and foresters. Working Trees Brochures are 6-page publications that serve as a great introduction to agroforestry.

Crowdsourcing US Gov challenges, contests, competitions and open innovation prizes | Real Estate Investment Trusts A real estate investment trust (“REIT”), generally, is a company that owns – and typically operates – income-producing real estate or real estate-related assets. REITs provide a way for individual investors to earn a share of the income produced through commercial real estate ownership – without actually having to go out and buy commercial real estate. The income-producing real estate assets owned by a REIT may include office buildings, shopping malls, apartments, hotels, resorts, self-storage facilities, warehouses, and mortgages or loans. Most REITs specialize in a single type of real estate – for example, apartment communities. There are retail REITs, office REITs, residential REITs, healthcare REITs, and industrial REITs, to name a few. To qualify as a REIT, a company must have the bulk of its assets and income connected to real estate investment and must distribute at least 90 percent of its taxable income to shareholders annually in the form of dividends.
