There is an increasing interest in indigenous trees across the region and a need for a manual on how acacias can be raised and managed. This handbook, covering 11 acacia-type species, provides a range of uses. It details what species to plant for particular purposes, where to plant them and how to raise seedlings. Following this are sections on establishment and management of both natural and planted stands and descriptions of the species. The aim of the book is to encourage a wider appreciation of acacias and lead to their better management and utilisation.
Dr Richard Barnes was the world authority on Acacia Trees based at Oxford University. He worked with others to produce this book that shows how useful this indigenous species can be. Creating wealth through knowledge is a by product of this publication.
