Top Spot

To prune or not to prune – that’s a question that can be answered in any number of ways, however, pruning is a skillset that has become a bit of a lost art in many parts of the country.


But, not to us.!


We have participating companies who see this function as a key investment in their forestry activity. Within this we have also been asked to assess pruners as part of a Top Spot competition.


So, this issue we bring you the hard-working people who have been assessed as top in their game for the first period of assessment, as well as photos of the crews who are a key part of this value creation task.


As we have said previously, silviculture is where the value in forestry is created, so recognition of the skills these folk bring to our industry is equally important as those working in the value recovery end of the business (i.e. harvesting).


If you have recognised  those who are featured in some of these photos and thought you could do just as well, our challenge to you is to come on board and show us what you have got.


Sponsors – They don’t have to do this but they choose to!

Awesome companies, awesome people and awesome support!....
