About the event

Want to grow trees on your farm, but not pines? The NZFFA Field Day is a great place to learn about the benefits of planting alternative species.

NZ Farm Forestry members will share their experiences of what grows well and where, success and failure, costs and returns.  These Field Days, delivered across the country, are hosted by the NZFFA, with support from Te Uru Rākau – NZ Forest Service.
