Allanblackia is an excellent prospect for small farms and sustainable agroforestry because of its long life and compatibility with other crops and local species. Farmers who learn about how Allanblackia can benefit cocoa farms often add Allanblackia to their farms.

Allanblackia is a local species that can be used to restore and reforest old farms and degraded lands, helping to make them productive again. Its shade protects young trees and other crops such as cocoa, a primary cash crop. Fallen Allanblackia fruits nourish the soil, and its dense, evergreen leaves help suppress fires. Some farmers are already planting Allanblackia around the perimeter of their farms to delineate their property and dissuade trespassers.
