Congratulations to an industry that was well due recognition for the economic contribution it makes to the local region. Through the initiative of the Northland Forestry Health & Safety Group, the Northland Forestry Awards became a reality.

The Northland Forestry H&S Group want to continue to celebrate and acknowledge our Northland forest industry and recognise our skilled workforce, in 2019.

The key objectives in having these awards is to benefit the region’s forest industry in several exciting ways, namely:

  • To attract skilled employees to the region as valued forest industry players
  • To up skill and lift the standard of the skill base of the forestry workforce
  • To provide an opportunity for the Northland’s forest industry to celebrate its skilled professionals
  • To unite industry players
