N. W. Jolly Medal
The N.W. Jolly Medal is the Institute of Foresters of Australia’s highest and most prestigious honour for outstanding service to the profession of forestry in Australia.
It recognises contributions from across the full scope of forestry and reflecting the diversity of significant contributions being made across a wide range of disciplines and forest management activities. In this context, forestry includes the sustainable management, development and use of forests for the diversity of goods and services that forest ecosystems provide, whether for public, private or commercial purposes, including education, research and development, forest policy and all types of forest land management.
The Award is named in honour of Norman William Jolly (1882-1954) Who made an outstanding contribution to development of professional forestry in Australia in the first half of the 20th Century.
The Award is made by the Board of the Institute on the recommendation of the Jolly Award Committee, which is made up of three Institute members and previous Jolly Medal recipients.
