Welcome to the latest issue of Foresttech.News.

As the first 6 months of 2023 are coming to a close, we need to again highlight the major disruption to industry following the recent announcement of the phasing out of native logging in Victoria, Australia. Families, businesses and towns have been thrown into chaos and we can only hope that the right support is given by local government to those impacted.

Looking ahead to this month’s FIEA technology event, thanks to everyone who has already registered for the upcoming Environmental Forestry Conference running on 20-21 June 2023 in Rotorua, NZ. We still have seats available and a bumper programme including panel sessions and a session led by a group from Future Foresters. Register your team now and we look forward to seeing you there.

In this edition of ForestTECH News, we’ll be covering:
