This project has helped with the very successful development of the North Queensland tea tree oil industry. There has been a rapid expansion of the industry and yields and oil quality have been excellent. This project has shown the potential of tea tree oil production in other areas of Australia. There is likely to be substantial further expansion of the industry as production and marketing issues are further resolved.
