Ryan Tompkins is the UC Cooperative Extension Forester and Natural Resources Advisor for Plumas, Sierra, and Lassen counties and is a California Registered Professional Forester (No. 3108).  His research interests include forest & fire ecology and management in the Sierra Nevada, forest restoration, and post-fire reforestation.  His 18 year federal career included working as a forester and certified silviculturist with the USDA Forest Service and working in the Fire Effects program at the National Park Service.  He is a member of the Science Advisory Panel for the California Wildfire and Forest Resilience Task Force and also served on its reforestation working group.  When he's not thinking about forested landscapes, he might be helping firewise communities, gardening, or just enjoying a quiet moment in the Sierra Nevada backcountry.
