Gerald Guenkel loves forests, wood and art – in any combination! As a professional forester for 35 years, Gerald has worked as a forest manager for a large forest corporation and as a college professor / forest program coordinator. In all these roles he developed skills in strategic planning, budgeting, teaching and effective communication techniques. What does this have to do with art? Gerald always loved creating from an early age. Many years later, he now has extensive small business experience in creating and selling chainsaw art. What did he learn? Marketing, understanding the customer, value of a dollar and how to rise above the competition. Currently, Gerald is continuing his chainsaw carving business while volunteering with three different local organizations. Remember, be creative and have fun!
