Mentoring Program

The HFFN Mentoring program helps landholders find their way. Experienced HFFN members visit landholders to discuss land management issues. The mentors aim to support landholders as they analyse problems and make decisions.

In 2016, the founder of the Master Tree Grower Programran three field days in various parts of the region which provided valuable lessons in farm forestry.

The mentoring program is continuing for 2017. Do you want an experienced farm forester to come and have a look at your property and help you find a way to decide which way to go? Contact



Hunter Farm Forestry Network (HFFN) facilitates the exchange of information about farm forestry and promotes the productive and sustainable use of trees on farms in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, Australia.

Farm Forestry takes many forms including timber belts, windbreaks, revegetation projects and timber production

Farm forestry includes  commercial trees and shrubs incorporated into farm operations.

Farm Forestry improves agricultural productivity.

It’s about which tree you want, for the purpose that you want.
