“Planning for an uncertain future: wind risk to forests and trees in a changing climate”.

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.

The theme recognises 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 responses
  • Tree biomechanics
  • Wind disturbance as an ecosystem process
  • Forest management approaches to minimise wind damage
