Thanks must firstly go to all staff of Forestry Corporation of NSW, without whom, this book
could not have been made. It is due to their work, documenting and photographing all aspects
of life at Forestry Corporation over the past one hundred years, that we were able to create this
book celebrating the Corporation’s centenary year.
Special thanks must also go to Saretta Fielding for sharing her artwork; Norm Farmer
for capturing the cover photo; Les Murray for his poem on page 5 and the Cumberland State
Forest volunteers for sorting through and scanning the Corporation’s archived photos for the
past five years.
