Greg Jordan Joins UNH Cooperative Extension as Rockingham County Forester

Greg Jordan has taken the reins as the UNH Cooperative Extension Natural Resources field specialist, otherwise known as the Rockingham County forester. He will work with landowners, communities, partners and other stakeholders to provide advice on managing woodlots and caring for community forests and trees. In addition to the traditional Extension service to large woodlot owners, Greg will work with new Hillsborough County forester Ethan Belair to develop resources and programs for small woodlot owners.  

Greg is no stranger to UNH. He received his bachelors and masters degrees in forestry from UNH in 2000 and 2003, respectively. He studied alongside some of Extension’s other Natural Resources staff, including two of our county foresters.  

Greg is also familiar with Rockingham County. For the past 11 years, he worked as a consulting forester in southeastern New Hampshire, with nearly half that time in Rockingham County. He liked the variety of work as a consulting forester. “You never know what you’ll be doing daytoday,” said Greg.  

He looks forward to bringing his knowledge of the area’s forests and the wood products market, and his connections in the forestry industry, to Rockingham County residents. “I know the landscape, the products and the people,” says Greg.
