The 2017 NZIF conference was held this September in Rotorua. It was an undoubted success with excellent speakers. Jonathan Dash, Chair of the Organising Committee, has kindly volunteered to write ‘The last word’. A short report on the AGM, the awards and the conference follows this Editorial. Papers based on some of the presentations will be published in the February issue of the Journal. The conference was held shortly before the 2017 General Election and representatives from some of the political parties - the Greens, Labour, National, New Zealand First and TOP - each spent 15 minutes presenting their views. All parties recognised the importance of forests in New Zealand. Some parties also recognise that forestry needs a clearer voice in government. There was talk of resurrecting a version of the New Zealand Forest Service, disestablished now for 30 years.
