Environmental Forestry 2022

Overview

Improving our environmental performance across the forest industry brings both challenges and rewards. For the first time, our Environmental Forestry 2022 Conference will bring together a wide range of foresters working on improving industry outcomes.

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. As a result, delegates can make positive change and learn from each other to establish and improve best practices. We will also encourage participation and contributions from national and regional regulatory agencies.

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.
