For farmers wishing to diversify their income and improve the value of their property, leasing their land to WAPRES for bluegum plantations is an attractive option. WAPRES has established an excellent rapport with landholders, recognising their importance to the success of our business.
Suitable land is selected, management plans are developed, seedlings are planted and sites maintained. Inventory is conducted at key stages during the rotation to assist in the preparation of the company’s harvesting schedule. WAPRES uses a mixture of coppicing and replanting with improved genetic material to establish second/third rotation plantations.
The following videos developed by the Australian National University describe aspects of WAPRES plantation management:
