Front Inscription

Tasmanian Forest Memorial

This memorial has been erected to honour "those workers who have lost their lives by accident while working in the forests of Tasmania"

A stylised tree stump, the memorial was the inspiration of Geeveston resident Peter Bennett.  Geeveston`s Streetscape Reference Group was responsible for the production and erection of the memorial.

The memorial would not have been completed without the continuing support of the Huon Valley Council, a generous grant from Forestry Tasmania and a sizeable donation of materials, labour and installation costs from Duggan`s Quarries and construction of Cradoc.

Unveiled on 25th November 2009 by Governor of Tasmania His Excellency the Honourable Peter Underwood AC
