Growing Confidence in Forestry’s Future (GCFF) Conference @ Novotel Hotel
Apr 4 – Apr 6 all-day

The 5th Growing Confidence in Forestry’s Future (GCFF) conference will be held in Rotorua on
the 4-6th of April 2018. The conference will focus on highlights from the many research activities
under way across the GCFF programme as well as updating on where industry is capturing the
benefits of the research.

The field trip will have a focus on forest phenotyping and will also incorporate a visit and
demonstration of research activities at one of the new flagship accelerator trials established in a
local forest.

The phenotyping cluster group will also hold a meeting as part of the GCFF conference. As in
previous years, we will have international presenters provide their view on key focus areas of
the conference.

The 3-day event is aimed at forest owners and managers, researchers, government, and
council representatives. We hope that many of you will be able to join us and so mark your
diaries now to save the date for this important meeting. Registration is now open at

Day 2 will have a focus on genetic improvement, work to improve productivity and wood quality, and biosecurity.  Log export logistics and fumigation will be discussed.

The field trip will include a visit to Port of Tauranga to look at log export logistics technology, log fumigation and methyl bromide recapture technologies, along with a visit to an award winning farm forestry property near Tauranga.

A more detailed programme and registration details will be available by early June.

Learn about the research programmes being funded by the levy, the results to date and how you as a forest grower can use these results to:

  • Achieve better financial returns from new and existing forests
  • Improve the health and resilience of your forests to pests and diseases
  • Maintain our industry ‘licence to operate’
