Concord, N.H., February 16, 2007-In recognition of more than two decades of service and achievement, George Frame of Bristol, N.H. was named Outstanding Forester of the Year by his colleagues in the Granite State Division of the Society of American Foresters (GSD-SAF). Currently a conservation easement steward at the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, Frame has served the Granite State Division of the SAF in a variety of ways, including chair of the New England Society of American Foresters (NESAF) Executive Committee, the Finance Committee for the NESAF winter meeting, and as the Granite State Division representative to the Tree Farm Program.

Frame was presented the Outstanding Forester award by the GSD-SAF at their annual meeting held in Waterville Valley on February 9, 2007. The award was first presented starting in 1971 making George the 37th recipient. The list of past recipients has been called a 'pantheon of notables' in New Hampshire forestry.
"This award represents the highest esteem and recognition by my fellow forestry colleagues," Frame said. "It is much more meaningful that I was given this award by folks that I know, that I have worked with, and shared so much with."
Frame grew up in New Hampton and attended the University of New Hampshire, where he earned a degree in Forest Management. After graduating he worked for USDA Forest Service for nine years on National Forests in New Hampshire, Colorado, Michigan, and Minnesota. As an assistant district ranger, Frame managed land for multiple uses such as wildlife, recreation, and timber management. Following his work for the Forest Service, Frame returned to New Hampshire and set up shop as a consulting forester, working with landowners throughout central New Hampshire. He also has been chairman of the Tree Farm Program in the state starting in 2000. He joined the staff of the Forest Society in spring 2005.

The Forest Society's portfolio of conserved lands includes working forests, voluntarily designated eco-reserves, a working Christmas tree farm (The Rocks in Bethlehem), and two major tourist destinations at Lost River Gorge in North Woodstock (leased and operated by White Mountain Attractions) and Mount Monadnock (leased to the State of New Hampshire as part of Monadnock State Park). The forest reservations are located in more than 90 communities statewide and range in size from a few acres to 4,000 acres.
"We sought and found in George an experienced forester with proven leadership skills," said Will Abbott, vice president for policy and land management.

As a forester, Frame has worked for the U.S. Forest Service including postings in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Colorado and Michigan, and spent nearly 12 years as a consulting forester in New Hampshire. For the past six years Frame has served as an Easement Steward at the Forest Society, helping monitor some of the more than 700 conservation easements the Forest Society holds. He was instrumental in adding the use of leading-edge digital aerial imagery to make on-the-ground monitoring more cost-effective and strategic, and authored "A Forester's Guide to Conservation Easements."
Frame has been active professional within the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and the New Hampshire Tree Farm Program. He was recognized by the Granite State Division of SAF as Outstanding Forester of the Year in 2007, and by the New England SAF with the James W. Toomey Award for Outstanding Achievement in Service in 2009. In 2006 he was awarded the National Field Leadership Award in recognition for his dedication and instrumental role in the American Tree Farm System, a program of the American Forest Foundation. He was recently named a 'Fellow" in the Society of American Foresters and now serves on the National Council of SAF representing professional foresters in New England and New York.
Forest Society Press Release: Forest Society Employee Honored by New England Society of American Foresters
www.forestsociety.com, 4 Mar 2006 [cached]
George Frame was recently honored by the New England Society of American Foresters (NESAF) with the James W. Toumey Award for Outstanding Achievement in Service. Throughout his career, Frame has shared his broad array of skills and knowledge with other, often younger, foresters, mentoring and instilling in them his particular brand of common sense and pragmatism.
Frame served as an officer of the NESAF for nearly 10 years, holding positions as chair, vice chair, and state representative. His forestry-related employment history began in the army, where he served as a USDA Forest Service assistant district ranger. He now works as an easement steward at the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.
In his work at the Forest Society, Frame played a key role in developing the Forest Society's digital imagery collection and interpreting the findings. He was one of the first to recognize the value of this new technology to monitor conservation easements, and he has shared his knowledge at forestry meetings, as a presenter at the national Land Trust Alliance annual gathering, and with others who hope to use it. He also wrote the Forester's Guide to Conservation Easements to provide guidance to his colleagues in the professional forestry and land conservation communities.
Frame has a B.S. in Forest Management from the University of New Hampshire. He is a licensed forester in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, an SAF Certified Forester, a Certified Inspector Trainer, and a Certified Tree Farm Inspector.
Frame has another accomplishment that he enjoys sharing with his colleagues: two years ago, he began making home brew. This past winter, the ESB from his Beech Street Brewery was a finalist in a Sam Adams competition.
