Re-measurement of lower-rainfall farm forestry species in Victoria to improve genetic quality & establishment: A report on Establishment Techniques, Sawlog Species Comparison & E. cladocalyx Progeny Trials in south-west Victoria after eighteen years.

Re-measurement of lower-rainfall farm forestry species in Victoria to improve genetic quality & establishment: A report on Establishment Techniques, Sawlog Species Comparison & E. cladocalyx Progeny Trials in south-west Victoria after eighteen years.

This report documents the results from three trials in the Lismore area of Western Victoria that were established in 2002-2003 to improve knowledge of growth rates and species suitability for farm forestry plantings on lower rainfall sites in Victoria. 

They include a trial of establishment techniques, a sawlog species comparison and a progeny trial for Eucalyptus cladocalyx (Sugar Gum).

The E. cladocalyx progeny trial is particularly significant and can provide a principal source of improved seed for this species which demonstrably has a lot to contribute to the development of lower rainfall sawlog and biomass production. 

This report was commissioned to capture the results of the studies and provide guidance for new initiatives to re-integrate woody vegetation into farming landscapes and contribute to new directions in production of wood and wood energy in these landscapes.
