    Mediterranean; 1000m altitude equatorial tropics
    Planning a project near Moyobamba, Peru. Elevation 900m.

    Most of the properties are failing cow pastures in clearcuts with pretty tough tropical grasses forming a complete groundcover.

    How would you go about replacing the grass with food forest/ rainforest without grass getting in the way?

    Specifically, what earthworks or tractor implement(s) should be applied?

    I assume this needs to immediately be followed up by mass plantings of cover crop seeds, groundcover starts, shrubs and tree saplings.
