Farm Forestry case studies
Seeing is believing. The practical experiences
of the many farmers, foresters and researchers who are actively
involved in farm forestry provide us all with greater knowledge
and confidence about the potential of farm forestry. Examples
from our own local area can shed light on species selection,
growth rates and market opportunities. Experience from further
afield can highlight new market opportunities, innovative
designs or management techniques.
These are the stories that make farm forestry
real. This page provides links to case studies prepared by
agencies, organisations, Farm Forest Line and the farmers
themselves. They show how farmers have been able to design
farm forestry projects aimed at solving real farming problems
and opening up new economic opportunities. Some provide real
data on performance, yields and returns.
Reports based on demonstration sites and research
trials provide more examples and in some cases comparative
data on species performance and management options.
You are welcome to add a case study. Simply
email us with a link to your web site or send us your story
and photos so that we can construct a new page. If possible,
provide details on location, management objectives and performance.
Measurements, observations and information on the benefits
provided or problems faced can make your case studies more
useful for others.
