Hello everyone, My name is Lawrence Sobson and I am your new District Forester. I am a 23 year old fresh out of college from Michigan State University with a B.S. in Forestry. I am originally from the Detroit area and am excited to work with you all with whatever forest issues you may have. I have worked for the University of Michigan on their tree crew and have worked doing research for Michigan State University's Department of Forestry. I am excited for this opportunity to help people and hope to get to know some of you soon. If you have any questions, concerns, or queries feel free to call me at (313)418-5244.
