Initiated by Farm Forest Growers Victoria (FFGV), the purpose of the Trials Review, Information and Genetics (TRIG) Project for Farm Forestry in Victoria is to improve information pathways to assist furthering farm forestry expansion. The project has been conducted over the last 12 months and this webinar will present its findings.
The project focused on four areas which will be addressed in the webinar:
- Update to the existing Victorian farm forestry trial database and identify priority sites to target for a strategically planned program of treatment and data collection
- Identify and map the regional location of high-quality existing plantings of priority species across Victoria including a full description of their soil types, altitudes and rainfall
- Document seed production areas from these sites, where improved seed can be sourced to produce improved planting stock – including species and provenance details
- Collate, clean and disseminate relevant updated datasets, reports and advisory information
