A nice visit with an old friend at Treehaven

It was nice that Nick and I could make the time to visit with my old friend Kevin Burns recently while traveling through Tomahawk Wisconsin, a visit that had been delayed far too many times.

Kevin and I have been friends since the early 90’s when we were both hired as subcontractors on an inventory project in Florida, a nice diversion from the nippy air of January in Wisconsin.

After this project our small Forestry Consulting companies lightly competed with each other on a few projects and cooperated with each other on dozens of other projects.

More recently Kevin was forced to give up his consulting company when Uncle George found a clause in his old Army contract and sent him to Iraq for a few years.  

After returning he found a dream position as a professor at UWSP, and the Forester in charge at UWSP’s Treehaven Summer Camp.  

This is where he hired my son Nick for a few years while Nick was in college to assist him in this endeavor.  I was reluctant to let Nick go but it was good experience for Nick and Kevin needed a student with some experience to deal with the dozens of work study students that he has doing project on the grounds.


Well back to our visit.

It was a great visit, caught up on news in the forest industry like only Kevin can tell it, learned a few GIS tips, and shared a few stories from the old days when we were both young foresters trying to change the world.

Bob Crane glad you had a nice visit. In anyone can find a clause in a contract that is to their benefit, it is Uncle Sam.
