The Small Forest Landowner Office would like to introduce Shane Martinez, the Forestry Riparian Easement Program (FREP) Technician. Shane has 12 years of state experience with an extensive background in forestry and administrative work. Half of his time with the DNR is completing field work and administering the contracts for the Forestry Riparian Easement Program. The other half is spent doing business administration work for the Forest Practices Division. Shane loves the outdoors and wishes he could spend 100% of his time working with the FREP. His wish could come true as full funding for FREP is a top priority for the DNR during the upcoming 2013 legislative session.
