Greg Jones is a research forester with the Human Dimensions Program.  He received a B.S. degree in forest management from Iowa State University in 1970, and an M.S. degree in forest economics in 1973.  He received a Ph.D. in forest economics with a minor in economics from Iowa State University in 1976.  In the summer of 1976 he joined the faculty of the Forestry Department at Oklahoma State University as an assistant professor and later was promoted to associate professor.  In 1981 he assumed the position of Research Forester with the then-named Intermountain Research Station.  In 1998, as an addition to his duties, he became program leader for the Bitterroot Ecosystem Management Research Project, a research partnership involving RMRS, Bitterroot National Forest, Northern Region, and The University of Montana. He was named Project Leader in 2004.

His research involves developing and testing methodology and models for applying economic analysis at both project and landscape scales.  In recent years this work has been focused on the economics of ecosystem management and planning, including the recent emphasis on fire and hazardous fuel management.
