The Australian Low Rainfall Tree Improvement Group was established to select and breed trees to improve productivity of farm forestry in low rainfall regions of southern Australia. This report provides an overview of the group’s achievements since its formation in 1999. A range of trials have been established, including provenance, progeny, genetic gain trials and seed orchards. Early results from field trials, as well as a description of extension, commercial opportunities and linkages to industry and other projects are provided. As a result of this project improved seed is available, with more seed orchards due to begin producing in 2007-08.
