Doug Wallace has Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in forestry from the University of Illinois and is a SAF Certified Forester. After graduation and until 1978, he was a field ecologist for the Illinois Natural Areas Inventory, the first comprehensive, systematic, statewide natural area inventory in the nation. Upon completion of the inventory, Doug began work for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and served in a number of positions and locations in Illinois. From 1988 to 2010, he served as state staff forester for NRCS in Columbia, Missouri. While state staff forester, he conducted research on the shade tolerance of big bluestem and little bluestem. In March 2010, Doug was selected as the NRCS Lead Agroforester at the USDA National Agroforestry Center in Lincoln, NE. The USDA National Agroforestry Center (NAC) is a unique USDA partnership among the Forest Service’s (FS) Research & Development (Southern Research Station) and State & Private Forestry mission areas, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Agroforestry-related interests include the establishment of trees and shrubs for waterbreaks, designing odor windbreak systems, and research on shade tolerance in warm season grasses for use in silvopasture and savanna systems.
