Rob has worked for the Forest Service since 1981. During his career he has been stationed at the Mt. Hood, Willamette, and Deschutes National Forests. He has experience in large-scale projects, including restoration of fire-dependent ecosystems, post-fire restoration, salvage logging, commercial timber harvest, and stewardship contracting. He has been directly involved with many types of data collection and processing used in analysis and computer modeling. Rob shares an extensive background in project implementation, which has proven to result in better projects feasibility and ultimately leading to the work taking place at the ground level.
