Rowan Reid's Profile Picture
Mr

Rowan Reid

 

In 1985, at the age of just 24, Rowan co-authored the book Agroforestry in Australia and New Zealand. He has since been a leader in the development of agroforestry education and extension programs in Australia having developed the first undergraduate course in agroforestry in Australia and the very successful Australian Master TreeGrower Program.

Since 1996, more than 1500 landholders from across Australia have completed the Australian Master TreeGrower educational program. In 2000, the program won the Eureka Award for Environmental Education. The program continues with support from the RIRDC and Land and Water Australia.

Rowan also practices agroforestry on his own farm. Bambra Agroforestry Farm provides the opportunity for landowners to see a wide range of tree species grown for timber, fodder, food and seed production as well as the opportunity for practical outdoor education. More than 4000 visitors have been shown around the farm since 1987 including school groups, farmer groups, overseas tour groups, tertiary classes and professionals. His research includes work on eucalypt plantation silviculture, buffer strips management, extension methods and landscape change.
