Gavin L. Wilson

I have been a practicing professional forester for 17 years. While I attended the University of Kentucky Department of Forestry, I worked as an arborist in Lexington Kentucky with Michler Tree Specialists, where I was responsible for tree care and maintenance, herbicide and pesticide application, and tree disease diagnosis. Upon my graduation in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science, I spent a summer working for Mead Paper Corp. as a forest intern in their reforestation program, where I was responsible for overseeing the planting of over 500,000 seedlings in one year. Upon the expiration of my internship, I served the Kentucky Division of Forestry, where I was a Senior Forester in Mayfield, Kentucky, as well as Chief Forester in Morehead, Kentucky. I was responsible for administering the Kentucky Forest Stewardship Program, where I personally wrote over 150 Forest Stewardship Plans, oversaw hundreds of acres of timber harvesting,which I marked personally, and the planting of over 1000 acres of new tree plantations. I was further charged with marking stands for timber stand improvement, as well as direct fire suppression. In 1996, I left public service for the private sector, working as Timber Procurement Superintendent for Kentucky Veneer & Plywood Corp., Columbia Kentucky Corporation, and Forest Products Inc. In this capacity, I was responsible for accurate timber valuation, followed by purchase, harvest, and reclamation. I know what its like to "put my money where my mouth is"! I was also responsible for all aspects of regulatory compliance, contractual negotiation, and sale retirement on the lands of private landowners. I received a Masters in Business Administration from Eastern Kentucky University in 2004, and am the only private consultant in Kentucky with this credential, as well as being an SAF Certified Forester and a candidate member of the Kentucky Association of Consultant Foresters.
