About Paul Kenny

Paul Kenny was raised within the horticulture industry on a family kiwifruit orchard in Te Puke.  He developed an interest in Arboriculture while working in urban forestry in Scotland in the mid 1990’s and later returned to New Zealand to study and obtain a Waikato Institute of Technology, Diploma in Arboriculture.  Since 2003 he has been the director of Paul Kenny Contracting Ltd based in Mount Maunganui/Te Puke and carries out contracting and consultancy work for local government and private clients within the central North Island. 

During 2014 Paul and Gerald worked together on a report for Tauranga City Council on the ailing Norfolk pines at Mt Maunganui.  Paul will share their experience gained from the research during this investigation and from his involvement with other cases where chemical applications have inadvertently impacted on non-target plants.
