 Dale Bosworth Named Chief of Forest Service

The US Department of Agriculture will announce today that Dale Bosworth, currently regional forester for the Forest Service’s Northern Region (Region 1), is the new chief of the Forest Service.

“We are pleased that Secretary Ann Veneman has chosen Dale Bosworth to lead the Forest Service,” says Bill Banzhaf, executive vice-president of the Society of American Foresters. “By selecting Bosworth, the Secretary of Agriculture has shown an appreciation for the value of professional forest management.”

Banzhaf says SAF strongly supports the selection of Bosworth because he is a forester and a natural resource manager of the highest caliber. SAF maintains that natural resource professionals should lead the Forest Service; Bosworth certainly meets, and even exceeds, our criteria.

 "Bosworth will speak knowledgeably and honestly when discussing the needs of the national forests” says Banzhaf. “We hope he will commit to science-based forest management and involving people and communities in decisionmaking at the Forest Service.”

 As regional forester, Bosworth has been an innovator by helping to develop programs like Stewardship Contracting, an effort to truly involve citizens in planning and implementing land management activities beyond timber harvests. His experience in the Forest Service has taken him all over the nation, and he knows this country’s forests well.

 Bosworth is currently regional forester for the Forest Service’s Northern Region (Region 1), which comprises 25 million acres in 12 national forests and four grasslands across northern Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and part of South Dakota.

 Bosworth, who holds a BS in forestry from the University of Idaho, has been a member of the Society of American Foresters since 1966. He has demonstrated a commitment to sound science and continuing education. The Society of American Foresters looks forward to working with him.

The Society of American Foresters is a nonprofit organization that represents more than 17,000 professional foresters and natural resource professionals. It is the scientific and educational association representing the profession of forestry in the United States. The Society’s primary objective is to advance the science, technology, education, and practice of professional forestry for the benefit of all society.
