Karl Steinicke
Technologist, Nanaimo

We are pleased to introduce you to Karl Steinicke, RFT.

Karl is a Registered Forest Technician with extensive experience in equipment operation. He began operating equipment for SYLVIS in 2005 on Vancouver Island while attending the Forest Resources Technology Program at Vancouver Island University (VIU). Upon graduation, Karl started his own forestry consulting company and secured full time work in the forestry sector. On his days off, Karl would return to Nanaimo for biosolid applications on the VIU woodlot.

In 2011, Karl reduced his time as a forestry consultant and increased his time working with SYLVIS. If not on the VIU woodlot applying biosolids, maintaining storage bays or building application trails, Karl may be found operating equipment at any SYLVIS site from the West Coast to the Interior of British Columbia and as far east as Edmonton.

Karl enjoys spending time exploring BC’s great fishing spots and working on his property on Vancouver Island.
