An economic assessment of the role of commercial tree crops to achieve greenhouse gas neutrality in predominantly grazing systems of south-western Australia
The results of this analysis show that a long-term tree crop plantation is effective at reducing carbon emissions from a predominantly grazing farming system. However, if the plantations are destumped, much of the carbon will be returned to the atmosphere in time, in which case benefits are confined to their ability to ‘buy time’ for the development of less-polluting technologies. The accreditation of commercial tree crops may provide a socially and politically feasible solution for medium-term...[Show more]
