Hayden Cram

Harvest Manager

 

 

Hayden was recruited by PHS in 2013 as a harvesting manager after having completed his Diploma in Forest Management. He has now finished and spends time assessing woodlots and managing harvest operations. His practical knowledge of logging operations comes from hands on experience as a chainsaw and machine operator in a logging crew and he now applies those skills in harvest planning and crew supervision.

As a keen outdoorsman Hayden looks for any opportunity to head for the hills hunting or fishing.
