redwoodforestfoundationMeet Linwood Gill, RFFI's New Chief Forester! The Redwood Forest Foundation (RFFI), is pleased to introduce our new Chief Forester, Linwood Gill. Linwood, a California Registered Professional Forester, has been hired as the Chief Forester of the Usal Redwood Forest Company, a RFFI subsidiary that owns and manages the 49,636 acre Usal Redwood Forest, located in northwest Mendocino County, California. Linwood is highly respected as a forester in the redwood region and has managed forestlands and consulted with non-industrial timberland owners for thirty years. He advocates a model of forest stewardship that epitomizes the sustainable management that RFFI espouses.
According to Mark Welther, RFFI President and CEO, Linwood’s hiring represents an important milestone in URFC’s transition to self-management. “URFC began the process of building our own management staff in November 2015. With Linwood, we are confident we now have exactly the person we wanted to lead our team, a highly-respected professional forester whose skills, experiences and personal philosophy align with RFFI’s goals.” More info at RFFF.org #redwoodforestfoundation
