Formatted Abstract/Summary
Since the cessation of rainforest logging in tropical and subtropical Australia there have been a
number of published works on different aspects of growing native rainforest timbers, yet much of the
relevant research has remained undocumented.

The recent completion of the Community Rainforest Reforestation Program (CRRP) in north
Queensland and other programs promoting farm forestry in the subtropics, as well as the restructuring
of Queensland government departments of Primary Industries and Natural Resources, has meant that
many of the people who conducted research in this field have recently changed jobs or research
focus. This book was an attempt to capture the ecological and silvicultural knowledge we have
gained over this period of time before it was lost.

In this concluding chapter we reflect on what might make future reforestation with rainforest trees
successful and the critical research areas that still need to be addressed. To facilitate this task we pose
a number of questions over which researchers and practitioners have pondered in recent years.

Additional Notes "A technical workshop was convened in June 2003 to review what we have learned in the past ten or so years of reforesting with rainforest and tropical species. The workshop was attended by many of those who have been involved in the reforestation effort in both Queensland and northern New South Wales. This peer-reviewed book documents the lessons learned as a result of their experiences." ; "A report for the RIRDC/Land & Water Australia/FWPRDC/MDBC Joint Venture Agroforestry Program, together with the Rainforest Cooperative Research Centre"
