Reinvigorating planted forest establishment research
Rotorua, New Zealand; 17-21 March 2025. 1st announcement - 2nd announcement
The first international conference of IUFRO Unit 1.01.04 Forest Establishment & Early Growth Dynamics (formerly called Forest Vegetation Management) was held on July 11-13, 2017 in Corvallis, Oregon, USA. The title of the conference was Forest Regeneration in Changing Environments and the goal of the conference was to bring together leading forest researchers and practitioners to share their latest research on managing forest regeneration and early stand dynamics in changing environments around the globe.
With one conference missed due the COVID19 pandemic, much time has passed since the last conference… and it’s time to reconnect! Since then, there has been a global shift towards planting billions of trees at scale to address issues of climate change and environmental degradation and to accelerate progress on opportunities to increase productivity in planted forests through technology and mechanisation. This combination of change (increased afforestation and adoption of new technologies) means establishment of planted forests is once again a highly topical area of forest science!
We’re planning a conference for our Working Party, in Rotorua, New Zealand, in early 2025 to once again bring together all those interested in planted forest establishment and early growth dynamics.
If you think this would be of interest to you or your colleagues please share this news. We’d like to hear from you about any themes or topics you want to see included in the conference by latest May 2023.
Please contact: Carol Rolando, Carol.Rolando(at)scionresearch.com, (Unit Co-ordinator) or Charles Nock, nock(at)ualberta.ca, (Deputy Coordinator) to express your interest in attending this event or share your ideas.
