Degree: BS and MS in Forest Management from University of Montana

Years of Experience: 10

Areas of Expertise: timber basis, timber sale administration, management plan development, timber theft/tresspass.

Other credentials: SAF Certified Forester, ATFS Certified Inspector, published author in Journal of Forest Engineering

Since college I've held a number of different positions ranging from Indian Tribe presales forester in Washington to Service Forester in NE Ohio.  I bought standing timber for a time in Indiana as well.  When my wife and I moved back to SW Ohio two years ago I used it as an opportunity to start my own consulting business and formed Mission Forestry Consulting, LLC (Mission Forestry Consulting, LLC - Mission Forestry Consulting LLC Home).  Moving to self employment has been, at times, a painful learning curve but so far I'm enjoying the rewarding work.  Things are slowly building, as to be expected when starting from scratch, but business has been good enough to justify continued efforts and see where it can go.  This forum has been a big help over the years (long time lurker) so I appreciate the folks running it.  If I can be of any help to the members of this forum please let me know.  
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
