With the hiring of Charlie Marcus in 2014, NRPS established its first official footprint in Tallahassee / Leon County. Charlie, having previous employment with the Florida Forest Service (FFS), formerly the FL Division of Forestry, brought a diverse background in fire & forest management in various positions throughout the state. Additionally, Charlie served as the FFS Urban Forestry Coordinator for the final ten years of his FFS employment. In this capacity, Charlie interacted with urban forestry practitioners across the state from Key West to Pensacola assisting with tree workshops, Urban & Community Forestry grants, and programs such as Tree City, Tree Line, & Tree Campus USA. Charlie now serves as the NRPS Urban Forestry Manager, while also participating in other forestry services offered by the firm. Charlie’s experience and expertise has expanded NRPS’ footprint in arboriculture, utility corridor tree/vegetation management, and municipal urban forestry across Florida and South Georgia.
Recently, NRPS added Stan Rosenthal to the Tallahassee staff. Like Charlie, Stan started his career in Florida in employment for FFS. He then served for over two decades as the UF-IFAS Leon County Forestry Agent and is a well-known & trusted local resource for anything “forestry”. In this role he promoted the educational understanding and effectiveness of urban and traditional forestry to the benefit the community at large, both in Leon County and elsewhere in Florida and South Georgia. Stan’s current focus is on urban & traditional forestry consulting, forest advocacy for non-profits like the Florida Wildlife Federation, and educational workshops & classes in various subject matters including arboriculture, traditional forestry, forest restoration, wildlife management, and best practices & professionalism in respect to harvesting timber.
So, whether you have a question about an individual tree or seek forest management advice on a large timberland tract, Charlie & Stan stand ready to provide quality services backed by extensive knowledge & experience, and delivered with trust & care.
