Wally Cunneen


Wally was 18 when he started working in the bush. In 1955 when he was 27 he started logging for the local timber mill. He had 3 crews and 26 horses. 4 horses to a team and sometimes up to 13 horses were used to move some of the bigger logs.

Wally purchased his first chainsaw in 1956, his first dozer in 1960 and his first skidder in 1974 – no more horses.

Worked in the industry for 45 years. Affectionately known as the fox.
