Summary There is growing appreciation across much of rural Australia of the benefits that may be realised from increasing tree cover on farms, while still maintaining existing farming activities such as cropping and livestock production. Increased tree cover offers multiple benefits which will vary from location to location. These benefits can be significant and may include: environmental improvements, such as salinity, water quality and soil protection; protection of biodiversity and remnant vegetation; commercial opportunities for farmers to use farm forestry as an additional income stream
