    Description

    A thorough evaluation of all factors possibly affecting a large-scale planting of eucalyptus is foremost in determining the cost effectiveness of the planned operation. Seven basic areas of concern must be analyzed:
      1. Species Selection
      2. Site Preparation
      3. Planting
      4. Weed Control
      5. Irrigation
      6. Harvest Planning
      7. Economics of Co-generation

    Only after detailed analysis has been completed, can the decision to move forward with major capital expenditures be made. Present pay-back is marginal depending on cost of installations, operating expenses and "avoidable rate" payments from utilities.
