Ever since he was a child, Mark has enjoyed trees and the outdoors. Little did he know then that it would become his career!

Mark Mowrey is a Senior Forester for Baillie Lumber Co. He is based out of the Smyrna, New York sawmill and works with landowners throughout Central New York.

As a professional forester, Mark provides his forestry expertise and knowledge to those in the region. He is known for helping landowners determine how best to harvest and effectively manage their forests.mark-mowrey-in-forest-vert

For the past 26 years, he has built his reputation by making sound forestry decisions and practicing proper environmental and forest management techniques. He approaches his work every day with a mindset that his forestry principles are built on the fact that trees are a resource that can benefit everyone when properly managed.

“What I like most about being a forester is that every day is a different adventure. Interacting with different people every day and building long- term relationships with people in the community is extremely rewarding to me” said Mark Mowrey.

Outside of work Mark likes woodworking, hunting, camping, music and exploring museums. He is also a dedicated volunteer with Boy Scouts of America and a charity called New York Log A Load For Kids. The charity is associated with the Children’s Miracle Network and benefits local children’s hospitals.
