Forestry’s bright future

Talking forestry and opportunities to add value to the sector inside the Forestry Hub.

In a Fieldays first, 35 organisations and companies from the forestry and wood processing sector came together under one roof inside the Fieldays Forestry Hub. We showcased the latest innovations and research that our scientists have been working on and connected with the public, industry, media, and government over four days to tell the story of wood – our low-carbon future.

From 29 November to 3 December, visitors explored the many facets of forestry and discovered how the sector has a vital role in mitigating climate change.

Scientist Simeon Smaill shared with visitors our growing knowledge of soils under radiata pine forests.

Presenter Cheree Kinnear models a pair of leather shoes tanned using radiata pine bark tannins for a Fieldays TV segment featuring Dr Stefan Hill.

The Forestry Hub enabled organisations across the forestry value chain to gather under one roof.
