The retirement of John Erickson from the Ashley National Forest Service means a new face has joined the local Forest Service team. Jeff Schramm reported for duty on December 5th to fill the position as Forest Supervisor. “It is great to return to the Ashley National Forest,” shares Schramm, who worked as a Flaming Gorge District Ranger from 2004 to 2009 and then as the District Ranger in Heber until taking this new assignment. During his 25 years of Forest Service experience, Schramm has also worked as an Ecosystems Staff Officer, Small Sales Forester, Timber Sales Administrator and Forestry Technician throughout Utah and Idaho. “I am looking forward to meeting new individuals” shares Schramm, “and would like to thank John Erickson for his 42 years of service to the ForestService and his leadership here on the Ashley National Forest.” During his time with the Forest Service, Erickson worked as a wildlife biologist, District Ranger, Forest Supervisor and Deputy Regional Forester.
