Institute of Forestry's relationship with Prince of Wales


NZ Institute of Forestry continues its relationship with the Prince of Wales

His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, participated in a forestry roundtable meeting over the weekend hosted by the Institute of Foresters Australia, in Queensland’s beautiful Mossman Gorge.

James Treadwell, President of the NZ Institute of Forestry was invited to attend along with Alfred Duval the inaugural winner of the Price of Wales Sustainability Cup. Mr Treadwell said it was a great honour to spend time with his Royal Highness again and discuss the importance of all forests to the world.

“We discussed New Zealand’s place in world forestry and the goal of planting 1billion trees over 10 years”. Mr Treadwell said.

“His Royal Highness has been promoting the benefits of forests for decades and most people are only just waking up to the benefits forests bring to all people in terms of clean water, recreation, carbon sequestration, biodiversity and general well being.”

“I was very pleased one of our future foresters, Alfred Duval, was invited to attend. Alfred is only 24 years old and at the beginning of his forestry career, this was a great honour for him, but also highlighted the importance of future sustainability to his Royal Highness.”

“His Royal Highness is a passionate advocate of sustainable forest management and I look forward to continuing our relationship and looking for ways to promote forests within New Zealand and the rest of the world.”

“It was incredibly generous of His Royal Highness to invite two New Zealanders to the top of Australia to discuss New Zealand’s role at promoting and implementing sustainable forestry practises.”

Mr Duval said the visit was an inspiring and has strengthened his resolve to promote forests and all the benefits they bring to all people. He understands, as the inaugural winner of the Prince of Wales Sustainability Cup that he has a responsibility to deliver a new forestry future for New Zealand, which is underpinned by sustainable practices and an integrated approach to land use.
