Tasmanian Forest Workers Memorial

The Tasmanian Forest Workers Memorial is dedicated to all the men who have accidentally lost their lives while working in the Tasmanian Forest Industry.

 

Since records began to be kept in 1955, over 90 men have tragically lost their lives as forestry workers in Tasmania. However, this memorial also commemorates all forestry workers since Settlement, who have been killed in the course of their work.

 

Geeveston was chosen as the site for this statewide memorial because of its reputation as the Forest Town, and was erected in 2009. A memorial service is held annually on the first Sunday in February.

 

There are currently thirty-five plaques on the Memorial with thirty-seven men being memorialised.

 

Families who would like to memorialise a family member who lost their lives while working in Tasmania’s Forestry Industry are welcome to contact the committee to discuss arrangements.
