24–28 January 2020, Rotorua, New Zealand
The 9th International Wind and Trees Conference

The 9th International Wind and Trees Conference will be hosted by The IUFRO working party 8.03.036, at the Novotel in Rotorua, New Zealand from 24-28 February 2020. This five day meeting will bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines and provide an opportunity to share the latest advances in knowledge on the interaction between the wind and trees. It includes an in-conference field that will focus on forestry in the central North Island. The theme recognizes that climate change will affect the frequency and magnitude of extreme wind events, as well as the state of the underlying forests. Scientists from a range of disciplines have the opportunity to share advances in knowledge on topics including:

  • Windflow over complex forested terrain
  • Wind loading on trees and their response
  • Tree biomechanics
  • Wind disturbance as an ecosystem process
  • Interactions between wind and other hazards
  • Forest management approaches to minimise wind damage and to develop resilient forests
