Not happy about the number of threads I have initiated of late under this topic ...  Cry

Those who spent time in the Kaimanawas in the later 1970's to late '80's, and the wider Tongariro District will remember Dave Wilson, who was the Environmental Ranger for the Tongariro District NZFS until around 1980, and after that the boss of the Kaimanawa Forest Park for the NZFS, and subsequently DoC. Around 1988 he headed to Te Anau and ran the cutter in Fiordland, if I recall correctly.

One of the good buggers who ran a tight ship and an early proponent of contorta control work in the Kaimanawas, and the Army land.

Passed away in the Nelson area early October.

RIP.

Worked for Dave in the Kaimanawas. One of the best bosses I ever had. He would never ask you to do something he wouldn't do himself. A very hard worker.
