Director of Forestry
Jason MacLean’s official title is UINR’s Director of Forestry and just about every day he is in the woods. And when he is not out traipsing around the forest...he’s thinking about being there!
Jason graduated with Honours as a Forest Technician from Maritime Forest Ranger School in Fredericton, New Brunswick. He has worked for many years in the sector including MPValley Lumber in East Margaree, where he was a Forest Technician responsible for supervising forestry workers and harvesting operations. He also worked with JLC Forestry Operations in Antigonish as a Forest Technician responsible for silviculture block layout. Jason also spent time working in the forests of British Columbia.
Jason’s day-to-day work at UINR involves assisting in the supervision of forestry operations and monitoring contractors’ work quality, production and harvest block layout. He ensures that every job complies with environmental guidelines.
Jason is on the Board of Directors of the Federation of Nova Scotia Woodland Owners.
When Jason is not working in the woods he is...you guessed it...playing in the woods! He loves to get out on his four wheeler. You can find him playing hockey, golf, skiing, or just about any outdoor activity.
“I have worked in other professions over the years, but it is great to be back in forestry doing what I am most passionate about. It is also nice to be part of a team that not only care about their work, but each other too.”
