Meet Beau Brodbeck

 My education and experience are strongly rooted in forestry having graduated from Auburn’s School of Forestry with a Bachelors of Science in 2000.  Following graduation I took a position as a consulting forester working with a variety timberland owners across the State.  In 2003 I was recruited to graduate school in pursuit of a Masters of Science in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University.  I worked in a multidisciplinary program combining the School of Forestry and Rural Sociology departments at Auburn University.  My research addressed the disjunctions between the growing numbers of small timberland holdings and a large consolidating forest industry unable to provide forest management to small timberland owners.


Today I am newest addition to the “Urban and Community Forestry Program” having been hired September 1st of 2005.  In my current position as Extension Specialist in Urban and Community Forestry I look forward to working with communities recuperating from the recent hurricanes.  Specifically, I will work with the Hurricane Ivan Financial Assistance Program, promoting and educating applying organizations and managing the progress of the program.  Under this program I am working with city governments, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions to promote the replacement, remediation, and assessments of urban forests.  My hope is to assist communities in the process of rejuvenating and expanding Alabama’s urban forests destroyed during hurricane events.
