Summary of the 2018 NZ Wilding Conifer Conference


This Group was instrumental in developing the New Zealand Wilding Conifer Management Strategy 2015-2030.

The proposed establishment of a new 'New Zealand Wilding Conifer Group' in 2018 will evolve from - and build on - the successes of the NZWCG, and will continue to represent a broad spectrum of parties dealing locally, regionally or nationally with spreading wildings.

An Interim Committee, supported by a Terms of Reference, is steering the changes. At the 2018 NZWCG Annual General Meeting in October, the membership voted to support the direction of the Interim Committee to establish this new NZ Wilding Conifer Group. The Committee is working on a Constitution and will hold a Special General Meeting in early 2019 to form the new Group. More information can be found in the AGM minutes
