This RIRDC report presents the results of a series of farm forestry species trials established in the Top End of the NT from 1998 until 2003. The complete details relating to the trials include trial site descriptions, establishment and maintenance details, species performance results, key findings and recommendations.

The report presents the results to help identify the best appearance grade tropical hardwood timber tree species and management options for a range of biophysical regions in the Top End of the NT. These trials compared the genetic and silvicultural variables of species under controlled conditions, and demonstrated differences within trials and between trials in a repeatable way.
