29 NZPPI members from native plant nurseries and the One Billion Trees policy team from MPI were involved in the meeting.
The key points from the meeting were:
- The production of indigenous trees will need to increase significantly to meet the Governments planting targets over the coming decade;
- This represents a significant opportunity for growth in the revegetation sector and an opportunity for a step change in technology, systems, standards and the workforce;
- NZPPI will work with its members in the sector and the Government to develop a sector strategy that will ensure that we can maximise the opportunities that will come from this programme.
