Future Foresters NZ aims to be part of the solution.
Forestry in New Zealand needs keen, talented, young people to enter and stay in all areas of the industry.
Future Foresters is a community. As young people move into the workforce & shape their careers, its important to stay connected with their peers. Through local & national events we create a space where like-minded individuals can get together & support each other.
Future Foresters host a range of events; from "networking" BBQ's through professional development sessions.
Go out on a limb, share your ideas & we will make it happen!
