Michael Green


Tahoe National Forest would like to welcome Michael Green as our new Acting Deputy Forest Supervisor at the Supervisor’s Office in Nevada City. Prior to arriving at the Tahoe, Michael was Deputy Forest Supervisor at Six Rivers National Forest in Eureka, California. His previous experience and communication skills will be an asset to the Tahoe National Forest and to the community.

Michael grew up in Savannah, Georgia and completed his career with the U.S. Army as an Airborne Medic, where he completed more than 80 jumps. He also worked as the Equal Employment Opportunity Specialist with the U.S. Army. From 1996 until his military retirement in 2009, he was a medic recruiter for the U.S. Army.

He earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology, and his Master of Arts Degree in Leadership. Michael began his career with the U.S. Forest Service in 2010 as the Civil Rights Officer with the Lassen National Forest. Michael also detailed as the Acting District Ranger and the Deputy Forest Supervisor in California. His goal is to become a Forest Supervisor one day.

What Michael enjoys most about his career with the Forest Service is working in public service. He says, “It is very rewarding to be in leadership and keeping our natural resources healthy for future generations is extremely important. If we don’t protect our forests now, they may be gone forever! There are a lot of people working with the Forest Service that are just as passionate about our environment. Michael receives personal satisfaction working with the Forest Service and we are very grateful to have him onboard.
