Perceived problems and potential role for eucalypts in farm forestry: observations from East India

Perceived problems and potential role for eucalypts in farm forestry: observations from East India

Socio economic evaluation of the potential for Australian tree species in the Philippines: 157-165

Australian eucalypts are suitable for a wide variety of climatic conditions and soil types, and provide a fast-growing source of timber for industrial and housing use in developing countries. The extent of adoption in some developing countries has been spectacular. However, criticisms have been made concerning the social desirability of large-scale growing of eucalypts, and ecological impacts related to soil hydrology, land degradation and impact on nearby crops.
