The Farm Forestry Toolbox is a collection of computer programs (called tools) designed to assist owners and managers of small to medium-sized forests map, measure, and manage their estates.

First conceived by Dr Andy Warner, and with contributions by many, Toolbox has been developed by Adrian Goodwin and Andy Warner since 1996. Versions 1.0 to 5.3 were funded by the Australian Federal Government as encouragement for private forest development, and owned and managed by Private Forests Tasmania (PFT). Since version 5.4 it has been owned and managed by Adrian Goodwin. A comprehensive history and description has been compiled in Wikipedia.

Toolbox installation files can be downloaded from here, or the PFT web site. It is free to download and use.
