The New Zealand Wilding Conifer Management Group is a group dedicated to support the active management of wilding conifer infestations in New Zealand since 2006.

The Group has currently 23 members, representing a broad spectrum of parties dealing locally, regional or national with spreading wilding. Trusts, regional councils and unitary authorities, Federated Farmers, Forestry Owners up to central government authorities (LINZ, DOC, MPI) and Crown Research Institutes are members.

Group members were instrumental in developing the New Zealand Wilding Conifer Management Strategy 2015-2030.

SCION currently manages the group and provides the secretary.
