No assumption made as this issue is about forestry practices in State Forests, but your points are well made.

I have just come back from working in plantations on the Liverpool Plains of NSW where trees are being planted with timber production as the first priority but their value in lowering the water table in salt prone areas, carbon sequestration and wildlife values are all being highlighted. Such plantings are to be commended, but their value for wildlife will always be limited due to the areas involved, lack of understorey and hollows. And as you say, there is a lot of resistance to turning agricultural land into timber plantation.
