S. Forest Service and as an independent contractor in the Inland Northwest.  Since joining IFM in 1995, Steve has been involved in a wide range of projects including stewardship plan preparation, timber cruising and appraisals, and timber sale preparation and administration.  Steve is also very knowledgeable about a variety of wildlife subjects.
