Scion's Resilient Forests Research Programme Conference 2023

We are in the early stages of planning the Resilient Forest conference and field trip for 13-14 June 2023 in Rotorua.

The Resilient Forests Research Programme started in October 2019, filling the gap left when the Growing Confidence in Forestry's Future (GCFF) and Healthy Trees, Healthy Future (HTHF) research programmes ended. At the outset, the programme set ambitious targets to address 3 key research questions of how to sustainably (1) increase productivity, (2) enhance resilience, and (3) manage risk and uncertainty associated with planted forests. The aim of the programme is to enhance the long-term productivity, socio-economic benefits, and resilience of production forests, ultimately supporting New Zealand’s transition to a low-carbon bio-economy and meeting our agreed carbon reduction goals.  During this 2-day event, we will share our findings with forest managers, government and council representatives, and researchers.
