The New Zealand Tree Crops Association is a voluntary organisation promoting interest in useful trees, such as those producing fruit, nuts, timber, fuel, wood, livestock fodder, bee forage and other productive crops.

‘Tree Crops’ is the affectionate abbreviation by which NZTCA is widely known.

Sharing knowledge: to improve tree cropping in New Zealand – promoting ‘treecrops’.

        Welcome to our official treecrops national web site.  
        We invite you to ethically share our interests.
        Please check the yellow menu-bar above for a website overview.

But please consider a nearby Event you can attend – visitors welcome – and enquire there.

On a more personal level, we encourage you to visit your nearest local branch’s field day events visiting interesting growers and topical discussion meetings
Visitors are warmly welcomed (unless otherwise stated, for some unusual reason).

Our national TreeCropper magazine publication is proudly edited and printed to a high standard every quarter.  TreeCropper is posted to all members.

NZTCA regional branches produce printed newsletters, although most branches now offer a convenient emailed option which is increasingly popular.
NZTCA had hoped to offer more internet services through this national website, but time and finance reality checks suggest the website should consolidate the services it already offers.

For upcoming events you can attend, at North Island + at South Island branches and other notices, check the Events you can attend  yellow menu at top.
