Seeing the Forest for the Trees

This years conference theme is “Seeing the Forest for the Trees” – selected to recognise the importance of holistic management for Australia’s forest ecosystems, and the pivotal role that environmental biosecurity and disease hygiene play in the health of these landscapes. The timing of these discussions aligns with the launch of the conservation-forward 2024-2033 Forest Management Plan, as well as rising global and national emphasis on recognising natural capital in the policy space.

National Forestry Day

To promote this year’s fantastic theme, DWG has partnered with the Australian Forest Products Association, aligning the conference date with National Forestry Day to promote the role of disease and pest management in the ongoing discussions around forestry resources and ecosystem health.
