      There is estimated to be around 300 million trees worldwide submerged in dams constructed during the 1950's through to the 1970s for the creation of hydroelectric schemes and water storage (Crockford, 2008). Often flooded with little salvage being undertaken, this forest resource worldwide is estimated to be worth up to $50 billion dollars.

      Rumsfeld's dilemma posed that known unknowns result from phenomena that are recognised, but poorly understood. In his closing keynote speech, Professor Ted Lefroy, University of Tasmania, remarked that there were three known unknowns that had cropped up this time, as well as at the last conference:

      - The carbon economy;

      - Forest policy; and

      - Public perception.

    • Abstract: Reid, Rowan
      I launched the Australian Master TreeGrower (MTG) program in 1996 as an agroforestry extension initiative of The University of Melbourne. The program included education and training, but it wasn't just a short course in forestry for farmers. The MTG also had a strong focus developing the information and peer networks that would provide landholders, and their communities, with on-going support as they implement their agroforestry activities.

  • Volume 39 Short comings and short stay of MIS plantations in North East
           NSW
    • Abstract: Wright, Mark
      From the turn of the century to 2009 a massive MIS (managed investment scheme) fuelled hardwood timber plantation expansion occurred in northern NSW. This all came to a screeching halt with the advent of the global financial crisis (GFC) in 2008 and the subsequent post GFC collapse of the MIS companies. By this stage approximately 30,000 hectares of hardwood plantations had been planted. The plan for these plantations was to produce a mix of pulp and sawlog products. The species utilised reflected this with Dunn's white gum ('E. dunnii'), flooded gum ('E. grandis'), Sydney blue gum ('E. saligna'), blackbutt ('E. pilularis') and spotted gum ('C. citriodora sub. variegata') being the main species planted. Following the collapse of the MIS companies the estate fell into a state of limbo and was left to grow on without any real form of management or silvicultural treatment until being sold off in individual parcels around 2015.

  • Volume 39 New study to investigate mid-rotation silvicultural options to
           optimise value from African mahogany plantations grown for the high value
           furniture market
    • Abstract: McGrath, John; Bristow, Mila
      African mahogany is an internationally important timber tree species. Commercial plantation establishment commenced in the Douglas Daly region of the Northern Territory in 2006 and the total estate is presently about 14,000 ha. There is a smaller mahogany estate (< 1000 ha) in northern Queensland, which consists of both commercial scale plantations and small growers plantings. The main purpose of the African mahogany industry in northern Australia is the production of high-value, appearance grade timber products which requires logs of suitable size and quality to match processing systems and wood with qualities that meet market demands. The limited studies of wood properties and manufacturing suitability have demonstrated considerable promise as high value timber. However due to the limited area and relatively recent expansion of African mahogany plantations in northern Australia there is limited knowledge of how site factors and silvicultural inputs influence the productivity and wood quality of African mahogany plantations.

      For more than 100 years Tasmanians have enjoyed the economic and social benefits from a bountiful supply of larger diameter "old growth" logs (generally greater than 60cm average log diameter) which have been the main source of the fabled "Tassie Oak" wood products. The large diameter logs suited sawmilling and the residues from sawmilling began the first eucalyptus based pulp and paper manufacture in Tasmania with significant commercial success and delivered widespread economic benefits.

    • Abstract: Geddes, David
      Over the last 15-20 years, there has been considerable interest in growing trees in tropical Australia. There are risks however as each year between November and April, cyclones can cross the coast in this region. Interest in industrial-scale plantation waned after very large losses that occurred during the crossing of Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasi in January 2011.

      Private Native Forest Productivity, is it the Key to the Future of Queensland's Timber Industry? If that sounds familiar, it was the title of a paper Dave Taylor and I presented at the 2002 AFG conference in Albany. The conference was 3 years after the S.E. Queensland Forest (S.E. QLD) agreement was signed, guaranteeing the contracted supply of wood to mills with allocation from State forests to 2024. Half of state forests of S.E. QLD were immediately converted to the conservation reserve and remaining forests to be converted to that tenure by 2024. A compulsory 40cm dbh (30cm optional) cut was implemented in the remaining state forests to meet the contracted timber supply to 2024.

      One of the many presentations given at the recent AFG conference in Launceston was that of Bryan Hayes, CEO of Forico. His presentation sought to address what has happened since the demise of the Managed Investment Schemes (MIS) in plantation forestry in Australia and the sale of State owned plantation assets. For Bryan, a new paradigm has emerged with institutional investors purchasing distressed land and plantation assets. Most plantation assets in Tasmania are now held by managed funds on behalf of private investors from overseas.

There are also few that offer such a suite of 'difficulties, obstacles or discouragement'. Fortunately, there are also few that offer the long term rewards that come with fighting short-term problems to succeed in the end. In our case it might help that we don't also have children to raise.

  • Volume 38 A road less travelled
    • Abstract: Downie, Rob
      My personal journey into the realms of commercial farm forestry had its genesis in my late father's driving passion. In in the mid-1950s my dad, Bruce Downie, moved to a very dry, rabbit infested, wool growing and cropping property of about 800ha. Most of the paddocks had large areas of gorse and the few remaining trees were suffering from die-back or rural tree decline. He set about lopping pretty much every paddock tree using just a chainsaw and ladder, which effectively revived these trees, providing great stock shelter and creating a park like aesthetic for the next 40 years. Unfortunately most have now died simply from old age and decay. As dad developed "Katrine Vale" he fenced off the Clyde River and other creek areas and established a few small shelter belts.

    • Abstract: Clarke, Gary
      Gary Clarke from Private Forestry Service Queensland is a long term personality in the farm forestry industry in South East Queensland. The work he has done in the field of extension, adult education and contracting has resulted in over 300 hectares of high quality and successful farm forestry establishment throughout the region. Over the past fifteen years he has developed a unique management system in response to the challenges of slope, weed and flood conditions in sub-tropical ecosystems. Gary's 'rubber meets the road' approach is built around honest advice, proven scientific method and consistent support for farmers over the long term. This has earned him the respect of local landholders.

  • Volume 38 Protecting your plantation from fire?
    • Abstract: Geddes, David
      Growing plantation trees is long term investment. Pine and eucalypt plantations being grown for sawlog do not mature until 28-35 years. Blue gums being grown for the woodchip market take at least 10-12 years to mature. In Australia, damage from wildfire is always a risk when growing longer term crops such as plantations. The risks increase after long periods of drought. In the last three years in much of southern Australia, rainfall has been well below average, and the drought conditions seem to be continuing. This suggests the 2015/16 fire season may be riskier than normal.

      A Gippslander, in 1962 I started at Creswick forestry school. Some past students owned forest, mostly pine plantations, but it was unusual. I did nasho, went to Melbourne University, was sent to diverse forest districts, studied ecology in Scotland with follow-up county council employment, then moved to Melbourne, working first in recreation, then with the Land Conservation Council. Overseas I'd observed happy people often had both urban and rural ties.

Coming from a family na ve in the ways of post-secondary education and business, the reality of purchasing land and farming as a career didn't cut the mustard and a scholarship with guaranteed job in forestry at completion was an answer to prayers. As a result, I had an interest in farming and the rural landscape right from the beginning. And here I am 40 years later sitting on 60 acres growing goats, semidurable wood and environmental benefits.

  • Volume 38 Perseverance plus: ... And a goodly dose of diversification
    • Abstract: Unwin, Greg
      I was a commercial fisherman for 20 years. Whilst still fishing in 1996, Georgie, my wife and I bought our first property, Woodbury Hill, a 2,200 hectare forest and grazing block which had a long harvesting history before me, going back to the convict days. Originally, it was bought by us as a recreational block with a longer term income potential. It wasn't long before I started looking into the potential forestry options for the property, notably to produce high quality eucalypt sawlog through careful silvicultural management and selective harvesting. By 2009 we owned nine properties totalling about 5,700 hectares in the central and eastern highlands and southern Tasmania. About 56% of the total estate is managed for native forest wood production, 9% for eucalypt plantation, and a substantial 34% of the forest consists of reserves, including a total of 1,344 ha under conservation covenants.

He originally cleared the land of red gums in order to provide pasture for his stock. It is located 6 km north-west of the township of Kalangadoo in the south-east of South Australia, and is made up of two blocks located on red gum flats. As such, large areas of the property are subject to water logging due to the region having an annual rainfall of approximately 740mm/year.

  • Volume 38 Swamp sheoak provenance screening and management on WA saltland
    • Abstract: Hingston, Bob
      Swamp sheoak (Casuarina obesa) is a useful W.A. native tree species for farm forestry or landcare revegetation on saline farmland. The timber of swamp sheoak is suitable for cabinetry, furniture or firewood and recent trials indicate that it is suitable as CCA treated fence posts. It is also suitable for planting on a range of soil types but is preferred on duplex sand over clay to heavy wet clays. As a seedling, it is heavily browsed by stock, kangaroos and rabbits - although it recolonises freely and is often seen as a dense stand of between 20,000-30,000 trees per ha on farmland or reserves.
