Forestry hires bring industry experience, conservation expertise to DNR

Four new hires in the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources forestry division bring extensive industry and environmental management experience to their new roles in providing support to Wisconsin's forest products industry.

The forest products services program provides assistance to Wisconsin's wood products industry while promoting sustainable forestry practices and balancing the needs of multiple forest stakeholders. The forest products services team maintains an online wood-use database for industry, provides education and outreach support, supplies forest inventory data and supports forest products research.

Steve Hubbard, forest products services team leader, says the new hires reflect the agency's long-term commitment to sustainable management practices. Wisconsin's forests now total more than 17 million acres and each year produce more wood than is harvested.

"The skills and experiences of these new team members help position our state for continued leadership in the forest products industry," Hubbard says. "We anticipate their work will produce exciting opportunities for collaboration that benefit citizens and strengthen the state's economy."

New team members include:

· Collin Buntrock, district forest products services specialist, northern area. Buntrock previously worked at a sawmill in northern Wisconsin and was responsible for establishing and administering timber sales and scaling saw logs. He has a strong background in GIS and computer technologies and has international experience promoting U.S. hardwoods. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees in forestry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is stationed in Rhinelander.

· Sabina Dhungana, statewide forest products services specialist. Dhungana brings more than six years of experience in the field and previously served as a program associate with American Carbon Registry of Winrock International. She also worked as a forest products specialist with the Kansas Forest Service. Dhungana holds a bachelor's degree in forest resource science from Tribhuvan University in Nepal and a master's degree in forest resource science from West Virginia University. She is based in Madison.

· Anna Healy, district forest products services specialist, southwest area. Healy previously served as director of operations at Adaptive Restoration, an ecological restoration company she founded with her husband. Prior to working with Adaptive Restoration, Healy served as the emerald ash borer regulatory specialist for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection. She earned a bachelor's degree in environmental science from UW-Green Bay and a master's degree in forestry from the University of Montana-Missoula. Healy is stationed in Dodgeville.

· Scott Lyon, district forest products services specialist, southeast area. Lyon has both sales and production experience including previous work for Danzer Group in Germany and in the US, Boise Cascade Building Distribution in Maryland and Gutchess Lumber in Pennsylvania. Lyon earned a bachelor's degree from Penn State and a master's degree from Virginia Tech studying market opportunities for Appalachian forest products in Central America. He will start his new role with DNR on June 30th and will be stationed in Green Bay.
