For a half-century, Karl Graves of Arnold has seen the winds of change sweep over the landscape he has been charged with managing.

As a forester for the U.S. Forest Service, Graves has traveled through the national forests to prepare timber sales, provided valuable information to the scientific community on the health of forests, and focused on the best management practices to balance wood supply, ecological restoration and forest regeneration. Forty-seven of those years have been spent on the Stanislaus National Forest where his intimate knowledge of resources and specific management actions have provided a unique perspective to gauge changes, environmentally, socially and economically.

During a recent ceremony to acknowledge his lasting contribution, Graves received his 50-year Length of Service Award. Chief of the Forest Service Thomas Tidwell traveled from Washington, D.C., to present the award.
