Learn more about Nathan:

“As an Area Specialized Agent for Forestry, I support county extension programs, forest landowners, and forest industry in the western half of the State by providing educational opportunities and technical guidance in regards to forest management. I received my B.S. in Forest Management from NC State University. Later, I attended Mississippi State University where I obtained a M.S. in Forestry focusing on Forestry Economics. My research in that program examined the economic impacts of invasive exotics on forest management.

My first few years in forestry were spent doing right-of-way forestry and then managing a privately owned forest in South Mississippi. The bulk of my career, however, has been working with the NC Forest Service helping landowners realize their goals for their forestland. Additionally, I gained extensive wildfire experience both here in North Carolina and the Western half of the US.

Going forward, I will be working with the 50 western counties of North Carolina where I want to provide a multitude of learning opportunities for forestry information to both forest landowners and professionals.”

We are so excited to have yet another knowledgeable member of team to serve North Carolina. Keep an eye out for him as he joins our outreach efforts!
