This issue includes a short report on the AGM, the Forester of the Year and Thomas Kirk awards, and the 2018 NZIF conference held at Nelson in July. Andrew McEwen describes the activities of the NZIF Foundation including the 2018 awards - ‘more awards, more applications and a record level of distributions’ ($44,500). Peter Wilks of the conference organising committee provides ‘The last word’. He comments that in the 30 years since he graduated many new wood products have been discovered; in his local hardware store sawn ‘4 by 2’ at $6.45/linear m is in competition with engineered laminated veneer lumber (LVL) at $6.20/linear m.
