NCT Forester Receives Award

 nct forester award

Ed Hayter
of NCT Tree Farming in Greytown, received the 2015 National Forester of the year award from the Southern African Institute of Forestry (SAIF).

The purpose of the award is to annually recognise individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to forestry practices, or have improved the reputation of forestry in South Africa through their individual operational actions. The award aims to recognise foresters for a specific forestry practice or action, as opposed to cumulative achievements. The award also aims to recognise operational foresters whose achievements might not always be noticed at a national level, due to their lack of exposure.

Hayter was the unanimous recipient of the award out of a shortlisted group of three final nominations.
