Australian Forest Growers National Conference 2016

To be held from 23 to 26 October in Launceston, Tasmania, this year’s Australian Forest Growers National Conference will see 44 speakers enlightening the delegates.

The conference also includes a choice of eight field tours covering industrial and private forestry, conservation and forest restoration, multipurpose farm and agro forestry, timber processing and manufacture, and wood engineering.

In addition, the show will see three Grower Workshops which are expected to be popular as some of the nation’s best forest owners will be sharing their experiences.

However, the hightlight of the Australian Forest Growers National Conference will be the dinner presentation of the National Tree Farmer Award, which recognises the achievements of often modest and quiet achievers who have well managed native forests and plantations and have shared their knowledge and experiences with others.

Other seminars, talks and workshops include; the Business Breakfast, the Farm Forestry Toolbox Workshop and three Grower Workshops.

For Forest owners/managers who wish to contribute to AFG National Policy,invitations are extended to the Policy workshops.

Delegates are also invited to attend the AGMs of both AFG and Forest & Wood Products Australia.
