This study, funded under the Joint Venture Agroforestry Program (JVAP), aimed to identify ways to
enhance the conservation value of exotic softwood Radiata Pine (Pinus radiata) plantations in southeastern
Australia. The work was focussed in the Tumut region of southern New South Wales (NSW).
This publication outlines the design of a study which has begun to address key issues of plantation
design and management in the Tumut region. It also summarises some of the principles that can be
embraced to increase the conservation value of both existing plantation landscapes and new areas
targeted for future plantation expansion.
