This Rural Industries R&D Corporation report considers whether commercial forestry is a viable option in northern Australia over the long term. It follows various reviews of the industry which have concluded that, for significant development to occur, a number of key issues need to be addressed including the sustainable management of natural resources and the economic, social and environmental goals of northern Australia.
The study lists specific issues that need to be addressed in future forestry industry related developmental activity in Australia. It suggests there is merit in refocusing some of the emphasis and effort presently directed at temperate forest industry R&D, towards northern Australia.
