The annual RGE-FABI Tree Health Programme Symposium took place as a hybrid event on Thursday 24 November with colleagues from three continents joining the live presentations at the RGE Technology Centre in Kerinci, Indonesia. This year’s symposium returned to an in-person event in Indonesia following the lifting to COVID-19 related travel restrictions. The three-hour-long symposium comprised 15-minute talks by 12 researchers all dealing with pathogens and insect pests affecting plantation-grown trees of importance to RGE. Three PhD students linked to the RGE-FABI THP including Marthin Tarigan, Nam Pham and Kira Lynn made presentations as did Dr Alvaro Duran (Head of Forestry Research) and Prof. Mike Wingfield, the co-ordinator of the project. At the conclusion of the symposium , members of the RGE leadership noted how impressed they were with the quality and focus of the research. Moreover, that this will ensure the long-term health and sustainability of RGE plantations.
