This report investigates alley farming by presenting observed effects on production in the competition
zone between short rotation Tasmanian blue gum (Eucalyptus globulus) and pastures. It documents
the extent of pasture growth suppression by adjoining blue gums, and reveals a significant boost in
production of edge trees. This information is integrated into an economic model of the alley farming
system for the purpose of estimating profitability of a range of design options.
