Improvement and Management of Teak and Sandalwood in Papua New Guinea and Australia

Breadcrumbs

Context

No germplasm resources for two national-priority plantation species (teak and sandalwood). Low capacity for germplasm delivery and small-scale forestry.

Tony Page and his team are working on an ACIAR funded project to improve access to germplasm. The community based project draws on his past work.

Outcomes

  • Foundation of germplasm resources from local and imported sources.
  • Improved nursery industry capacity for tree production.
  • Improved silviculture practice
