Nelson/Marlborough Local Section Meeting Tree Crops for the Future – Sweden

Nelson/Marlborough Local Section Meeting

Tree Crops for the Future – Sweden, presented by Professor Urban Nilsson

Professor Urban specialises in forest production at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. He is located in southern Sweden and his research is primarily about forest production in the three most common conifer species in Sweden, the two native species Norway spruce and Scots pine and the introduced lodgepole pine.

Urban is also interested in management of mixed forests which has been a neglected area of research in Sweden. Since forests in Sweden serve multiple goals of e.g. wood production, recreation and biodiversity, much of the research is about how to combine these sometimes conflicting goals. In addition, half of the forest land in Sweden is owned by small private forest owners which makes it important to design forest management methods to meet the objectives of the owners.

The University of Canterbury School of Forestry Year 3 students will be in attendance, so please take this opportunity to come along to talk to perspective employees also.

When: Thursday 27 th April 2017, 4.30pm
