Ken started working in the industry in about 1985 during vastly different times in the industry. Back then the chainsaw was the “go to” machine.

Ken and Karen started their business, KC and KN Hall Pty Ltd, more than two decades ago. It started as a  small native forest logging operation however, foreseeing a future in the hardwood plantation Industry, their business adopted the mechanical harvesting machinery and equipment method which, through innovation, research and development over the past 20+ years, has seen the business grow.

The Australian Forest Contractors Association (AFCA) board of directors and staff  have extended their sincere condolences to AFCA director, Karen Hall and family following the sudden passing of her husband, AFCA Member, Hall of Fame inductee and a significant contributor to our industry.
