Log Processor Excellence - Murray Smith

Forestry Awards Winner Snapshot

Being in the private woodlot and not in the corporate forest sector, a contractor doesn’t often have access to the resources like constant auditing. But when you excel with technology and IT like operator Murray Smith – Burson Logging Limited, then that’s a huge advantage. Murray is the Log Processor Excellence winner at the 2022 Top of The South Forestry Awards. 

Having been in the industry for many years Murray has adapted to the introduction of mechanisation and technology well. 

He technically processes every log to its maximum value with minimal wastage. Any QC check on his work see’s the log lengths 95% spot on. 

His cut deck is well organised and he works in well with the fleeting machine and other skid users. Murray’s machine is always kept greased and maintained and in an immaculate condition too. 

Described as a man of few words, Murray has been employed by logging contractors for over 30 years.

Congratulations Murray Smith – Burson Logging Limited - Log Processor Excellence winner at the 2022 Top of The South Forestry Awards.
