The first annual Eastwoodhill conference has a core focus on the Trees for Bees research currently being conducted at the arborteum. Dr. Linda Newstrom-Lloyd of Landcare Research will present preliminary results of her research into trees and shrubs which provide a high quality pollen source for bees. From the diversity of plants at the arborteum, she has identified many that have the potential to increase pollen supply during spring and autumn shortages.

Dr. Newstrom-Lloyd will be supported by a panel of speakers from the bee industry, farm forestry sector, NZ Nursery Association and Landcare Research. Farm profitability is dependent on the health of bees, both native and introduced, this conference presents and opportunity to show how all sectors of the community can improve bee health.
