Co-Chairs’ Summary: Field Dialogue on Tree Plantations in the Landscape (TPL) in New Zealand

The Forests Dialogue’s (TFD) New Zealand Tree Plantations in the Landscape (TPL) Dialogue is third in the TPL field dialogue series, which was initiated following TFD’s Scoping Dialogue on Intensively Managed Planted Forests (‘IMPF’; September 2015, Durban, South Africa; subsequently renamed Tree Plantations in the Landscape (TPL) to emphasise its focus, and the landscape context of tree plantations). TFD TPL Dialogues are conducted in partnership with the New Generations Plantations Platform (NGP1), and with key stakeholders in each field dialogue location. Earlier TPL field dialogues were held in Chile (May/June 2016) and Brazil (March 2018).
