Freely sharing his felling expertise – Paul Gardiner

Experienced on all felling machines and operationally, Paul Gardiner from Kelly Logging is the Tree Faller - Mechanised of the year at the 2022 Top of the South Forestry Awards.

His vast experience gained during many years in and around forestry equipment has allowed Paul to input to the design and operation requirements of the latest machines.

This has been invaluable, and his willingness to make himself available inside and outside of working hours to share his expertise and knowledge speaks volumes for his work ethic.

Paul’s desire to get the most out of his machine and desire to ensure that the next machine off the design block is to build to the highest and safest standards possible must be applauded.

Well done Paul Gardiner – Kelly Logging, Tree Faller – Mechanised at the 2022 Top of The South Forestry Awards.
