Tāne’s Tree Trust has partnered with Pure Advantage to produce a two-day conference at Te Papa Tongarewa on 27-28 October 2022. The group’s aim is to highlight the need for Aotearoa to complement its existing productive land uses by weaving more native forest back into our working lands. Research shows that this will result in a myriad of benefits, which include (but are not limited to) biodiversity enhancement, erosion control, water quality, carbon sequestration, adaptation to climate change, cultural values, and high-value timber and non-timber forest products.
There are roles for different species of trees and types of forest in Aotearoa – as part of wise, sustainable land use. However, the focus of this conference is on native trees and diverse forests.
We welcome you as someone with common interests in this subject, to support O Tātou Ngāhere: Regenerating our landscapes with native forests and, as appropriate, encourage you, your team and community to attend and participate.
You can get tickets and find out more about the programme and speakers here on the conference website - www.otatoungahereconference.org.nz
We look forward to seeing there.
