The data and information presented in this report, together with the AFFFM as a tool, have particular relevance to landholders currently or considering integrating farm forestry into their farming businesses, government agencies promoting joint venture arrangements with private landholders, government and non-government organisations providing assistance and extension packages, and companies promoting forestry schemes to potential investors
This study explores their motivations for participation and the financial impacts of integrating forestry with other farm activities through twenty-two case studies in south-east and north Queensland. Factors affecting the type and extent of forestry activity and limiting greater levels of forestry activity are examined, together with landholder attitudes and experiences towards joint ventures and annuity payments. The Australian Farm Forestry Financial Model (AFFFM) was used to analyse financial information for several projects, and was further developed to include taxation and joint venture modules.
