Tasmanian farmers have grown private plantations due to growing demand for timber
Tasmanian farmers have jumped on the ever-growing demand for timber, establishing private plantations on their properties. Graham Freeman was taking a punt when he planted a broken hillside on his property at Milabena, in north-west Tasmania, with sequoia redwoods - a tree that grows to towering heights in northern California. Mr Freeman is one of a handful of farmers in Tasmania who have established small plantations on their properties. In a state that lived through the so-called "forestry wars" for decades, stirring up interest in tree farming is not always easy. The state-funded group Private Forests Tasmania (PFT) and the CSIRO have launched a research project examining the state`s agroforestry sector - looking to ultimately entice more people into the industry. Martin Moroni from PFT says with demand for timber increasing worldwide, farmers and landholders are well-placed to capitalise if they get into the market. Source: http://www.abc.net.au
