About the NZIF Foundation

The NZIF Foundation was established in 2011 by the NZ Institute of Forestry to advance education in relation to forestry.  This includes encouraging and supporting forestry related research, education and training through the provision of grants, scholarships and prizes; promoting the acquisition, development and dissemination of forestry related knowledge and information and other activities that do not conflict with the charitable purpose.  For the purposes of these awards, forestry is broadly defined to include all those activities involved in the management and use of forests and their products, the objects of which are the production of wood or other forest benefits and the maintenance of the environment in its most beneficial form.  All forests in New Zealand, whatever their purpose, are encompassed in the definition.
