Action : BRS or ABARE to generate land access zoning coverage through Shire Council's. Discussion on land use n broad or land use zoning of region pressed into horticulture may be a problem n Tumut Shire Council has GIS capabilities n vineyards in Tumbarumba experiencing large expansion recently n water use and harvesting may be a problem in the Murray Darling basin. SFNSW are doing studies on how much water radiata plantations use. Thought is that trees are good for catchments. Summary and closing Michael Ryan Summary of plantation potential discussions David Marston Summary of farm forestry discussions 1. consent requirements: n need uniform coordinated approval process n best management practice/Code Forest Practice ( ISO ) n training n planning trees into farmland n road use/who pays? 2. players 89
