Northland Forestry Awards call for nominations

Friday 7 Jun 2019

Moving into the fourth year of the Northland Forestry Awards, the Northland forestry industry in New Zealand can step up once again and celebrate those that contribute to a vibrant sector contributing to the regions GDP.

Recognizing those that punch above their weight with commitment, a high standard of work competency and a credible work culture is something that the region has not been short of over the last three award campaigns. Organisers continue to promote the positive outcomes of this initiative in bringing the industry on this occasion to celebrate together, to encourage those on the cusp of their careers to continue training and development and to reward our industry hero’s.

The awards have been moved to Friday September 20 and Jackie Clarke; singer & celebrity will be mistress of ceremonies for the night at the ASB Kensington Stadium, Whangarei. There is an expectation to sell-out once again to a crowd of over 500.

Northland Forestry Health & Safety Group encourage the industry to get nominations in sooner than later. “We have allocated a two-month window to get your nominations lodged as they close 1 August”, says group spokesperson Andrew Widdowson. “There are too many great people out there to ignore in this process and it’s quite acceptable to nominate yourself and your company too,” he confirmed.

New to this year’s line-up of categories is Woman in Forestry celebrating the diversity of our growing workforce and the great workmanship that females are bringing to a typically male dominated workplace. P F Olsen put their hand up to sponsor this category as they certainly recognise the contribution and increase in females in the industry today.

Nominations opened on 1 June and can be completed online, check out our website at: for all information and the nomination form.
