This year at Fieldays was the launch of the brand new Forestry Hub. Under the theme of ‘Wood – our low-carbon future’, the Fieldays Forestry Hub gave visitors the chance to explore the many facets of the forestry and wood processing sector and how the sector has a vital role in mitigating climate change.
Included in this was a stand on biosecurity, which is recognised as extremely important for the ongoing protection and health of NZ’s forests. As key providers of forest health surveillance, SPS staff member Lucy Aukett was on hand to promote the work of the SPS team, and the opportunities available for forest biosecurity training. For example, the free forest biosecurity eLearning available online here.
