The commission announced Friday that Mark Cutrer, who has served as a district forester for the commission, will take over the position.

Cutrer, of Hazen, has worked for the commission since 1993 as a county forester, investigator and fire management officer. As district forester, Cutrer covered 16 counties in eastern Arkansas.
