Mr. Raines started with Acorn Forestry’s Geospatial Group and was responsible for coordinating all internal and client-based geographic information systems, GPS, and mapping services. As Operations Manager, he is responsible for coordinating field operations and direct supervision of planting, burning, chemical application and heavy mechanical site preparation activities on approximately 100,000 acres per year.
Jason works closely with crew supervisors, landowners, subcontractors and other foresters to ensure all jobs meet or exceed customer expectations and are performed in a timely manner. He continues to assist the Geospatial Group to optimize field operations, improve logistical support, and aid in emergency response activities.
