Lane has been with the CFC since November 2017, returning to Duluth from northern New Mexico. As part of the FMR office, Lane is routinely involved in a blend of research, education, outreach, and forest management activities. His research focuses on the fire ecology of red pine forests in the Great Lakes region where he uses tree-rings and other historical records to better understand the ecological and cultural history of fire-dependent plant communities, and apply this information to contemporary forest policy and management. In his free time, you might find Lane on a northwoods trail, in his home kitchen, or somewhere in between.
