One desirable option for the remediation of salinity in dryland agricultural areas is the development
of commercial tree crops to utilise excess water not used by annual crops and pastures. Tree crops
able to resprout after repeated harvests carried out at short intervals may be economically and
practically desirable. Oil mallee is potentially one such crop for the low-rainfall areas of the Western
Australia wheatbelt.
