Focus on Forestry 2019
Innovative local solutions for forestry in Southern Africa.
The keenly anticipated Focus on Forestry conference held at Cedara in the KZN midlands in April went off like clockwork and provided delegates with plenty of useful, practical info to take back to their own businesses. Similarly the field day provided an opportunity to view new technologies and innovations in action in a plantation environment.
Michal Brink of CMO, organisers of the event, told delegates that the first Focus conference was held 30 years ago with the aim of providing a platform for foresters to share ideas and "take forestry in South Africa forward". The Focus conference, now held every two years (the next event is in 2019) is still providing that platform and was thoroughly enjoyed by close to 300 delegates.
Next event: 17 to 19 April 2019
Location: Mpumalanga, South Africa
Theme: Bridging the digital divide in the African forestry sector
