SUMMARY The past and present yields of typical eucalypt forests in New South Wales are in the order of 3 to 40 cubic feet per acre; but the potential productivity is often in excess of 100 cubic feet per acre. The low actual yields are due to the low level and poor quality of the forest growing stock. Various characteristics of the growing stock are considered. Productivity can be increased by adopting an appropriate silvicultural treatment which promotes the rapid regeneration of unstocked… 
Winds of change for silvicultural practice in NSW native forests
Summary This paper reviews the development and current implementation of silvicultural practice in native State forests in New South Wales and how it can deliver ecologically sustainable forest
The Eucalypt Forest—Resources, Refuges, and Research
SUMMARY Our ecological knowledge of eucalypt forests is limited. Fundamental processes such as nutrient cycling and primary production, and fundamental ecological alliances upon which proper
Kenaf Versus Forests as a Source of Paper Pulp
SUMMARY Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.), an herbaceous annual, is a potential source of raw material for the pulp industry. It is adapted to warm growing conditions and is capable of high
Preliminary studies on a native Australian eucalypt forest invaded by exotic pines
In some parts of Australia, the exotic tree species Pinus radiata is invading native eucalypt forests from adjacent plantations and it is evident that a new type of mixed forest community will develop.
Resource Use and Biological and Environmental Planning for Eucalypt Forest Management
SUMMARY If foresters are to retain the right to make and implement management decisions on public forest land, they must broaden the resource use and management planning base, and create or improve
Forest management strategies for the lower South Coast region of New South Wales
The aim of the study was to develop a suitable economic model of wood production for application to land-use planning situations particularly in regions where forestry is already, or could be,
