One in a series which aims to provide practical guidance for people wishing to establish farm forestry projects. It outlines the steps required to successfully establish rainforest timber trees, particularly in plantation situations, in the Wet Tropics of north Queensland. It was written for land managers (including farmers) and intermediaries such as farm forestry or agribusiness advisors. It discusses what is known about growing native rainforest species on farms, the planning issues that growers need to address and the trees’ requirements for successful establishment and early plantation management. It describes general principles that can be applied to different sites and illustrates the management decisions involved, using case studies based on north Queensland research. 2005, 87pp, Pub.
