Two blackwood growers


Two blackwood growers discussing the finer points of blackwood silviculture and markets.

Look at those magnificent blackwoods behind. Thanks guys!!


And 6 long metres of well managed premium Tasmanian blackwood sawlog.

The work is done and now it’s time to sit back and watch the quality and the money grow.

  1. Hi Gordon, what about some background info please.

  2. Hi Gordon
    Silviculture: initial stocking, pruning and thinning regime, age, average height and diameter, pros and cons.

  3. Hi Floyd,
    You could begin by reading this:
    Average height and diameter are not currently known. A complete inventory of the plantation is on my list.
    Pros: All things considered this is a great example of farm-grown plantation blackwood. The use of a cypress hedge to block the wind on this exposed ridge-top site is revolutionary in Tasmania.
    Cons: Not quite the regime I would recommend but it’s now on the road to a great future.
