Murray was impressed with the [then] young forester, David Thode, getting into his ute, travelling to the property and personally demonstrating how to do first lift pruning.
Dave and Murray discussed the future management of the investment, including mapping, inspections, reports, insurance, and pruning, thinning, harvesting and replanting plans.
PF Olsen has managed Murray's investment ever since that date, including all aspects of the harvest of the first 15 hectares at the end of 2017.
Murray says: "The aspects that I have particularly appreciated over the years has been the quiet patience of discussions and the clear, timely recommendations, which I have always accepted and acted on. I have found the working relationship to be very satisfactory and I look forward to its continuation for the benefit of my three sons."
