Growing Eucalypts for Timber - Videos and Information

Members of the NZ Farm Forestry Association have been growing eucalypts for many decades and have valuable experience to share. We recommend you join NZFFA and the Eucalyptus Action Group, get involved with your local NZFFA branch, and visit some local growers to learn more about growing eucalypts for timber.


Here you will find a series of short videos and information notes providing ‘back to basics’ information on growing eucalypts for timber. We hope these resources will encourage you to give eucalypts a go.

There are some golden rules when growing  eucalypts for timber which we have covered in the resources.

There are also variations in the way that eucalypts can be grown to produce timber: that is part of the enjoyment of growing diverse species, and we could not hope to cover all these variations here.
