Conference 2025

50 YEARS ON –  EYES TO THE FUTURE
Nelson  28th -30th March  2025

In March 2025 the Nelson Branch of NZTCA will host our organisation’s 50th anniversary conference.

It is particularly appropriate to hold the conference back in Nelson, where NZTCA was founded, half a century ago.

We have arranged some great field trips to Nurseries, Orchards and private visits to Appleton’s Arboretum.

We have some inspiring speakers lined up; including renowned author and horticulturist Bill Brett, who holds the prestigious Royal NZ Institute of Horticulture Associate of Honour.

We look forward to welcoming tree croppers from all over NZ (and some from overseas) back to the Mapua hall, in the coastal village of Mapua.
