New Zealand Tree Grower;Nov2007, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p2
The author reflects on issues relevant to the forest industry in New Zealand. According to the author, the Michael Hay Memorial Award is aimed at encouraging and assisting younger members of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association (NZFFA) with their tree planting. He highlights continued progress within Future Forests Research. He believes that climate change, emissions trading and afforestation grant schemes will become part of the forestry vocabulary and will be as familiar as the terms pruning and diameter at breast height (DBH).
