Both climate and rainfall are highly variable across much of the country, and soils are generally poor. For these reasons, the majority of Australia’s forests, and of its 20 million people and their activities, are concentrated in a band within 200 to 400km of the eastern, south-eastern and south-western coasts of the continent, and in the island state of Tasmania (CoA, 1996, 2002). Most plantation forests1 have been established within this zone.
