And the winner is...
Paul Millen, Project Manager, NZ Dryland Forest Initiative won the 2018 Forest Growers Research Award for Communication and Sector Engagement at the Forest Growers Research Conference in Tauranga. The awards have been made each year since 2011 to recognise outstanding achievements in forest growing research.
“This award is only possible thanks to the positive interest and support given by many in the forest industry to the NZDFI. Also people's willingness to engage in our research and to collaborate with us to develop durable eucalypt species that will diversify regional forestry land use, sequester carbon and supply hardwood timber for future processing.
“The One Billion Trees initiative is a huge opportunity for us, and I’m really excited about what the future holds for the NZ Dryland Forests Initiative. We have big plans.”
