Making Better use of Information Resources

A new Sustainable Farming Fund project aims to improve the delivery of information about trees to farmers.

Landowners looking for information about any aspect of planting and managing trees in the working landscape will soon be able to access a new online – and free – database. The database will comprise the most useful and credible information resources available.

Farmers and other landowners are being asked to participate in an online survey to ascertain their specific information and training needs related to trees on farms, and also their preferred methods for receiving new information – formally and informally.

Please complete a short survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Trees_on_Farms

All surveys completed before 31 December 2012 will go into the draw for some fantastic prizes - $100 petrol vouchers, a copy of Native Trees of New Zealand and Their Story by John Wardle or Rural Women NZ cookbooks ‘A Good Spread’ and ‘A Good Harvest’.
