Many properties in northern New South Wales have areas of dense regrowth forest that has arisen from previous clearing or logging.

This report describes methods for managing regrowth to improve productivity while minimising the effect on, or even enhancing, biodiversity. The methods outlined in this booklet should be used as a general guideline only, as forest types will vary from farm to farm.

The booklet’s focus is on dense regrowth that may present a problem to the landholder. It is important to see these areas in the context of a whole farm plan. Within the farm certain areas may be devoted exclusively to grazing, to timber production or to conservation. Here we will be discussing areas that might successfully combine elements of all three.
