Welcome to the Tree Crops Website

The Tree Crops site gives references and links to material about tree crops, essentially perennial plants with useful products. Much of of this material is now archival in nature.

WANATCA, the West Australian Nut and Tree Crop Association Inc (previously the West Australian Nutgrowing Society) was active for more than 30 years, from 1974 on.

During this period the Association produced two regular publications, the quarterly magazine 'Quandong' and the annual 'WANATCA Yearbook'. It also initiated a series of conferences, the ACOTANC series (Australasian Conference On Tree And Nut Crops). These were held in different parts of Australasia at 2-3 year intervals and were hosted by local organizations involved with tree crops.

The Association maintained a website at wanatca.org.au, which held online versions of all the WANATCA Yearbooks, and later issues of Quandong. Following the closure of the Association and its website, most of this material was transferred to an archival website.

This material can be accessed at:


David Noel was the founder of WANATCA, and served as its President for more than 15 years.

Links to more archival matter on tree crops is expected to be added here in the future.
