New ANF Supervisor Named

Sherry Tune has been selected as the new forest supervisor of the Allegheny National Forest, according to Kathleen Atkinson, U.S. Forest Service Eastern Regional Forester.

Atkinson said, “I am delighted that Sherry has accepted the position of Allegheny Forest Supervisor. Her excellent leadership and collaboration skills will help strengthen the Allegheny's ties with the public.”

Tune is currently the forest supervisor on the Mendocino National Forest Supervisor in northern California, a position she’s held since February 2012.

“I am looking forward to joining the Allegheny National Forest and engaging in great dialogue and connecting with the employees, communities and partners who enjoy the many benefits from this remarkable forest,” Tune said. I am excited for this new challenge and experiencing a different environment, ecosystem and climate.”

Prior to arriving on the Mendocino, Tune served as district ranger on the Los Padres National Forest in southern California, following service as a deputy district ranger for the Coronado National Forest in Arizona. She started her U.S. Forest Service career in 1978 as a clerk-typist before transitioning to fire management, where she has extensive experience, including working on hotshot crews, leading a handcrew, serving as assistant forest fire management officer, an emergency center manager, fire planner, fuels program manager and fire ecologist. Tune’s U.S. Forest Service experience also includes work as a certified timber cruiser, law enforcement officer, national training coordinator and union steward.

Tune will report to the Allegheny National Forest on November 17.
