Having been with Lomakatsi since 1999, as the Project Design and Implementation Division Supervisor, Josh uses his extensive experience in ecological and technical forestry, botany, restoration silviculture, GIS mapping, fuels reduction, and logging systems layout to design and implement ecological restoration prescriptions. Prior to Josh moving into the position of Contract Operations Director, he served Lomakatsi as a crew boss, supervising Lomakatsi’s thinning and controlled burn personnel. Since 2006 Josh has managed daily operations on Lomakatsi’s stewardship projects. He works closely with both contract forestry crews and timber operators to insure that an integrated approach is accomplished that meets the multiple objectives of these complex projects. In additions to Josh’s oversight of the Lomakatsi workforce, Josh currently manages contract operations working with 8 different subcontract crews during restoration projects.
