Skilled Professional - Terence (Pea’nut) Ross

Terence (Pea’nut) Ross is the overall skilled professional of the year at the 2022 Hawkes Bay Forestry Awards.

Terence continues to train staff in operations and methodology and has a long history of growing high performing staff. 

He understands the importance of new ideas as the world around us changes and he is willing to implement these changes without fuss.

It takes the absolute ownership of our responsibilities to Te Whenua and is a Kaitiakitanga in the forests.

Harvesters will often defer to Terrence for assessment of what can be achieved and ask him to come up with a solution to give them the best possible outcome.

His reputation precedes him, and his nickname represents his physical stature but certainly not his professionalism and character, all of which makes him well known and respected both within the forestry industry and the Hawke’s Bay community.

Congratulations Terence (Pea’nut) Ross you are the Skilled Professional of the Year for the Hawke’s Bay Forestry Awards 2022.
