Treegrowers’ Co-operatives: The Key To The Future Of Farm Forestry

Here is a very informative article I found that discusses farm forestry cooperatives in Australia.

Overall the article is positive about farm-forest cooperatives, but many of the industry and policy issues that existed in Australia in 1997 when the article was written still persist today.

Of particular interest and relevance is the discussion on the situation in Tasmania, and the factors that have undermined and continue to undermine the commercial viability of the industry here.

I have contacted Tony Gill, the author of the article, to seek his help with the blackwood growers coop.

Happy reading.
