    It would be good to know if the planting is on already-deforested land, or if it generates more 'wild' forest destruction.

    With the rainforest changes in Amazonia to eg. cattle grazing, and in the Matto Grosso to crops, this eucalyptus forest plantation plantings will be akin to the oil palm plantings and destructions in Borneo and Malaysia.

    I would like some information on the impact on the environment and wildlife.
    There must be an Environmental Impact Analysis
    .... anybody have a link?

    The Brasilian coastal Mata Atlantica rainforest - once extending over thousands of miles - is now down to about 2% of its original extent.
    (And my local replacement coastal 'urban planting', Estrada da Coco, is now devoid of coconuts!)
    ... such is the nature of rampant development.

    Geof old man, don't worry to much about the trees. Perhaps this will make you sleep better.
