Conference Report
NZIF 2015 Conference and AGM

Chris Goulding

The New Zealand Institute of Forestry held its annual conference and AGM on 10 August 2015 at Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington. Conference - NZ Forest Policy Project (FPP) Garth Cumberland for the FPP management team introduced the conference and speakers. The forest sector is proposing an intergenerational forest policy for the greater good of New Zealand. The policy should cover all forest types in this country, look at economic, environmental and social benefits, and be pragmatic, enduring and utilitarian. The project itself was ‘proudly crowd sourced, cooperative with self-help’. NZIF President James Treadwell stressed that the FPP included, and was the initiative of, the whole forest sector. He stated, ‘My hope is a clear policy will enable the government of the day to clearly understand what the sector can offer, understand the long-term nature of the sector, and ensure any decision made is made with the sector and the long-term policy in mind.’
