Improving our environmental performance across the forest industry brings both challenges and rewards. We seek to facilitate speakers and delegates to share successes and learnings among peers across a range of forest management companies for large and small forest estates.

Environmental Forestry 2023

Overview

This event brings together key technical and management people from industry and government. It is designed both for people with boots on the ground and those planning operations to meet policy requirements.

Case studies will focus on the challenges we face in improving environmental performance. This event will engage forest company professionals, regional councils and those involved in national environmental standards.

The programme delivers case studies on ways to improve outcomes for managing production forestry operations as well as opportunities for networking. For 2023 we will deliver new topics and technical content based on previous delegate feedback and consultation.

What's Planned?

We plan to include a range of case studies across the forest production cycle from harvest planning to post-harvest audits and impact assessments. Best practices and recent developments will be discussed through shared learnings among industry professionals. A cross-section of forest operations will be included in the range of professional presentations.

The conference agenda will appeal to regional council staff and management from forest company professionals, from small to large forest companies as well as regulatory and policy staff from local councils, Ministry for Primary Industries, NZ Forest Service and the Ministry for the Environment.
