ForestWood 2018

Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, 21 March 2018

Conference Overview

Following the spectacular success of ForestWood 2016, the combined forestry and wood products industry is coming together to surpass it in March with ForestWood 2018.

Woodco is pleased to once again support the conference jointly between the Wood Processors and Manufacturers Association, NZ Forest Owners Association, and Forest Industry Contractors Association.

150 days after the new government unveiled its game-change plan for a billion trees, the national ForestWood conference picks up the working challenge.
ForestWood 2018 is our first opportunity to seek out the ways to meet common objectives.  What’s needed to get the billion trees growing in the right places to produce the right results and how to get fair competition for the logs being harvested now.
We’ll be dealing with the key issues; where the land will come from, who's going to be doing the planting, the future of the ETS and the climate change impact, what the new Forest Service is going to be up to and what encouragement is coming from the government to put the resulting timber production to good use. It will bring all parts of the value-chain together for a common collaborative effort and provide a unique networking opportunity.

ForestWood is the only opportunity to participate in a whole-of-industry conference and will be an event not to be missed.
