Abstract/Summary A large number of socio-economic research projects have been conducted in north Queensland which have drawn on observations from, or been otherwise inspired by, the Community Rainforest Reforestation Program (CRRP). The research may be considered under the headings of financial performance of farm-grown timber, externalities (or environmental values), impediments to tree planting on farms, analysis of the timber supply chain including timber marketing, and facilitation of forest industry development. This paper summarises a variety of insights generated by the research, on small-scale forestry based on native tree species and on policy measures which may be adopted to promote tree growing on farms in tropical north Queensland.

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"
