Harper, R.ORCID: 0000-0003-0268-2917, Smettem, K.ORCID: 0000-0003-2650-4429, Reid, R., Callister, A., McGrath, J. and Brennan, P. (2009) Pulpwood production. In: Nuberg, I., George, B. and Reid, R., (eds.) Agroforestry for Natural Resource Management. CSIRO Publishing, Collingwood, Vic, Australia, pp. 199-218.


This chapter mainly examines the second option and describes the major aspects of producing short rotation pulpwood crops on farmland, from the perspective of the independent private grower who finances the trees, undertakes or supervises all the work and sells the pulpwood on harvest. The information is general in nature as many management practices are tailored to suit particular growers, sites and market situations. Establishing a commercial plantation is a significant investment and it is recommended that landholders seek specific additional advice before proceeding.
