Obituary One last trek for forester who loved life
One last trek for forester who loved life Ralph Naylor 1923 - 2007 In 1950 a young Yorkshire man, Ralph Naylor, arrived in New Zealand. He held a Forestry degree from Edinburgh University, and although only 27, had been a Captain in the British Army, serving in France, Germany, and India. Climbing and skiing were passions, and he had climbed in Norway, France, and the Himalayas. He was accepted into the N.Z. Forest Service, and briefly spent time as an appraisal officer at Mamaku before going to Rotorua for induction courses and specialist training. Following these, he was assigned to the National Forest survey with responsibility for it over a large area of Nelson, Marlborough, and North Westland. (no keywords)
