Abstract: Forests are acknowledged globally for the diverse benefits they provide. Planning strategically, both internationally and in New Zealand, includes considering how we can manage and develop forest resources for the benefit of present and future generations. It is a time of change, including considering how to respond to climate change. As we face the challenges of our time, taking a strategic approach, innovating, diversifying and working together is increasingly important. Te Uru Rakau - New Zealand Forest Service is working to plan strategically, support and advise the sector, improve services, and build a better future for New Zealand through forestry. This paper highlights what we see on the horizon and work underway to contribute to the future of forestry.
