OF FORESTRY

AUDUBON SUSTAINABLE
FORESTER OF THE YEAR
Russ Weber, ACF, CF, RF
Gainesville, FL

Russ Weber became part of F&W
Forestry Services, Inc. after graduation
from North Carolina State University in
1977 with a BS in forestry. He has served
in various positions with F&W, from a
staff and district forester in Albany, GA,
to his current position since 1988 as the
regional manager in Gainesville, FL. He
also serves on F&W's Board of Directors.
Russ holds a Florida broker real estate
license and is a State Certified General
Real Estate Appraiser. He has certifications and registrations from the Society
of American Foresters as a Certified
Forester and is a Georgia Registered

Forester. Membership and participation in various organizations include the
Association of Consulting Foresters,
Society of American Foresters, Florida
Forestry Association and the Alachua
County Land Conservation Board.
"I am truly honored to be recognized
by Audubon Florida and I look forward to
continuing to incorporate management
practices that protect and conserve wildlife and the environment," Weber said.
He and his wife, Penny, live in
Gainesville. They enjoy working on their
longleaf pine tree farm, college sports
and serving their local church.

LEGISLATORS OF THE YEAR
One of the challenges the forest industry faces in Florida is that 80 percent of our working forests can be found north of
Ocala, but 80 percent of our state legislators can be found south of Ocala. We call that the 80/20 Rule.
"The 80/20 Rule makes it imperative that the forestry story reaches legislators outside of our geographical base," said
Florida Forestry Association Executive Vice President Alan Shelby. "It also makes it imperative that the legislators in the forested areas of the state are willing to listen and to take the lead on issues affecting their forestry constituents. This year's winners have done just that."
SENATOR TRAVIS HUTSON
Prior to representing District 7 in the
Florida Senate, Hutson served as the state
representative for Florida House District 24.
While serving in the Florida House,
Hutson improved the water quality in
Florida, as he successfully carried Florida
Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam's
water policy reform in the Florida House.
Hutson graduated from Lafayette
College in Pennsylvania in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in
economics and business. He resides in St. Augustine with his
wife, Tanya, and their daughter, Taylor. Hutson continues his
family's legacy of working in the forest industry.

REPRESENTATIVE JAY TRUMBULL
Representative Trumbull is a native of
Bay County, FL. Outside of his legislative service, he works at Culligan Water,
where he is the fourth generation of his
family to work at the family-owned business started more than 60 years ago by
his great-grandfather and now run by his
father. He is a co-owner of Southern Air
Experts, a small business located in his
hometown of Panama City, FL.
Trumbull is a graduate of Auburn University, where he earned
a BS in entrepreneurship and family business.
He is married to his high school sweetheart, Brittany Fishel
Trumbull, and they have one child. When he isn't working,
Trumbull is an avid outdoorsman. *
