Acacia mearnsii (black wattle) plantations in South Africa cover approximately ha. Uromycladium acacia (wattle rust) has spread over Limpopo to the Western Cape of South Africa. This disease of black wattle causes reductions in growth and mortalities in severe infections. expectation value (LEV) is a standard DCF technique applied to many timberland situations. LEV calculates the value of bare land in perpetual timber production and is often used to value even-aged pine plantations. However, it is also useful in the valuation of immature timber stands and uneven-aged timber stands cut periodically. Angus, who established a plantation at Ral'ensworth about with seed imported from Australia by his father-in-law, Mr. Nicholson, and by had about 1 acres under wattle, 2 Mr. G. Angus, who had 1 acres planted to black wattle in the Noodsberg by ,5 and Mr. H7lIley who raised a plantation.   In mature plantations, the wattle seems to be dying a natural death from fungal attacks and old age, as documented in numerous cases by the VCT. The implication here is that the exotics will eventually die out and be replaced by shola species in a major plantation area—if they are left alone.

Wattleseed. There are almost 1, Acacia species, commonly called wattles, growing in Australia. Of these, wattleseeds, leaves or timber of over one hundred species have been used by Indigenous Australians for thousands of years as food, medicine or materials for tools and weapons. valuation described in this book attempt to relate value to the level and expected growth in these cashflows. There are many areas in valuation where there is room for disagreement, including how to estimate true value and how long it will take for prices to adjust to true value. But there is one point on which there can be no disagreement. suitable plantation species for marginal sites, such as alang-alang grasslands (Arisman , ).
