Oklahoma's State Forester George Geissler Named National Association of State Foresters President

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 12:16:56 CDT

Oklahoma's State Forester George Geissler Named National Association of State Foresters President Oklahoma State Forester George Geissler was recently named president of the National Association of State Foresters (NASF).

“As leaders of state government, State Foresters have high standards for leadership of the association that represents their interests at the national level,” said Jay Farrell, executive director of NASF. “It is an honor for George Geissler to be elected President of NASF by his peers. This means state foresters across the nation recognize his leadership skills and have a high level of confidence in his abilities to serve their common interests.”

Geissler has a distinguished career in forestry, having worked as a forester and wildland firefighter for variety of organizations, including the United States Forest Service, a private corporation and as a business owner before joining Oklahoma Forestry Services in 2006, where he serves as the director and state forester. In his current role Geissler provides leadership for the conservation, enhancement and protection of Oklahoma’s 12.5 million acres of forests and wildfire mitigation and suppression for all 77 counties in the state. Geissler will serve a one year term as NASF president, succeeding Wyoming State Forester Bill Crapser.

“State forestry agencies work to ensure the health, productivity and sustainability of our nation’s trees and forests while protecting our citizens from loss due to threats such as wildland fire,” said George Geissler. “I look forward to working with my fellow state foresters and our partners to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

Established in 1920, NASF is a non-profit organization composed of the directors of forestry agencies in the states, territories and the District of Columbia of the United States. State Foresters manage and protect state and private forests, which encompass two-thirds of the nation's forests. State forestry agencies in cooperation with federal agencies are the primary delivery system for forestry activities.
