New In-house Silviculture Crew for Aratu

Wednesday 3 Nov 2021

 
Yesterday Aratu Forests went back to the future and established an in-house Silviculture (primarily waste thinning) Crew.

For the last 30 years forestry companies have been outsourcing most of their activities to contractors resulting in a very transactional relationship. Aratu feels that there may be a range of benefits in revisiting this model in some areas of our business.

With this trial we hope to achieve positive outcomes for the workers, and our company and develop a model that is sustainable for the long term that will attract more young and talented people to the sector.

A big thanks to Adrian Whiting and Mark Grayson for taking up this challenge and William Grogan for getting it to the start line.
