Model Farm of Timber Trees in 4 Acers

Dear All,

Looking forward for your suggestions. We’ve 4 Acers of land in Andhra Pradesh, with black soil wherein currently Tobacco is being cultivated. For some reasons, we are planning to come out of tobacco cultivation. We are interested in planting some timber trees. We need your expert guidance in choosing the right timber plants out of Subabul, Sarugudu, Eucalyptus, Teak, Malabar Neem, Gummadi Teak, etc., and also in the economics of the chosen plant, with the following considerations:

  1. We’ll drill a borewell & go for Drip if needed
  2. Less monitoring
  3. Time period - 8 to 10 years

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Raj

depends on which area of AP?

i was reading and trying for my farm as well. Carefull and preplan about being these tree shed lot of leaves and proned to attract fire.

I think sprinklers are better than drip… What do you think?

I think, Sprinklers are more effective for vegetables/flowers etc but not for timber trees. Maybe experts/seniors can throw more light on this. BTW, the land is in Prakasam District of AP. Any suggestions from seniors on the model that I was requesting for?

Regards,
Raj
