The Integrated Farm Forestry Demonstration Sites program was a co-investment grant program administered by Private Forests Tasmania via funds made available from the state government and the federal government's Smart Farming Grant program.
The program sought to provide grants to develop landscape scale best practice forestry plantings in the North West, North and Southern Tasmania.
Primary producers were invited to participate via an expression of interest process.
Private Forests Tasmania are pleased to announce and congratulate the following landowners on their successful applications.
- Logan Pty Ltd, Evandale
- Fulham Pty Ltd, Dunalley
- Gunningham Farms Pty Ltd, Montumana
- Kenilworth, Campbell Town
- Winton, Campbell Town
- The Back Run, Ellendale
- Quamby Plains and Chester, Westwood
The successful applicants are dispersed throughout Tasmania and across the sites there is a 50/50 mix of shelterbelts and woodlots and a range of species including Radiata Pine, Blackwood, Eucalyptus Globulus, Eucalyptus Nitens and other mixed species.
Planting will commence in later winter/spring 2021 and the trees will be integrated into farming enterprises that currently include prime lamb, wool, grass seed, cereal grains, forestry aquaculture, dairy, beef, cropping, seed growing and potential horticultural crops.
