Hello All
I recently received an email from a friend in WA, Roger Rankin Crook. Roger is a retired Agricultural Scientist. He was commenting on the failed MIS schemes over there. He alluded to the fact that they were growing the wrong type of tree. Instead of growing Eucalyptus globulus they should have been growing Eucalyptus camaldulensis
Although River Red Gum is not suited to woodchips for paper pulp, Roger says that , despite its name, it will actually grow in a variety of environments and is a more commercially valuable timber.

Do any of our rural friends have any experience growing it on their property?
