John Cissel Oral History Interview
After receiving a MS in forest planning from Penn State, John Cissel worked in several positions within the Willamette National Forest before becoming the Research Liaison based on the Blue River Ranger District. In that position, he advanced the research-management partnership, led collaborative field studies of alternative silvicultural and landscape management practices, supported implementation of Andrews Forest research projects, and was instrumental in many communications activities, especially with land managers across the Pacific Northwest. From the liaison position he moved briefly into the Forest Director position and then on to leadership of the Joint Fire Sciences program based in Boise, Idaho.
