New Northern Region Forester is Faye Krueger

Faye Krueger is returning to Missoula.

Krueger graduated with a BS in forestry from the University of Montana and began work in the US Forest Service in 1980. Through the years, she’s worked up to Associate Deputy Chief of the National Forest System last year. And this week, she was selected as the Northern Region Forester, based in Missoula.

US Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell announced the move this week. Krueger replaces Leslie Weldon, who has become the Deputy Chief of the National Forest System.

Tidwell said, “Faye’s experience and focus on collaboration make her an excellent leader…she’ll bring passion and common sense to our 25 million acres of northern forests and grasslands.”

Krueger has held positions on the Payette, Wasatch-Cache, Gallatin, Caribou and Tongrass National Forests and the Dakota Prairie Grasslands.

US Montana Senator Jon Tester said, “I’d like to welcome Faye back to Missoula in her new position…I look forward to working with her to continue implementing smart policies that put folks back to work in the woods and maintain our forests’ health.”

Region 1, the Northern Region, encompasses 25 million acres over 5 states. It includes 12 National Forests located in northeastern Washington, northern Idaho, and Montana; and the National Grasslands in North Dakota and northwestern South Dakota.
