Ohio Extension Hires More Staff To Serve Woodland Owners

Ohio State University has hired several new Extension personnel in the past year to work with existing OSU Extension program staff and the Ohio Division of Forestry to increase the educational assistance available to the over 330,000 private non-industrial woodland owners in Ohio.

OSU hires a few extension foresters, ODNR loses around 20 field foresters.  

The two aren't really connected, but still not a good trade :(

Nope, I work in NW Ohio.  Would it have been Jeremy?
