Charles Jungberg


Charles JungbergForestry Pioneer

Charles was raised in Kalispell Montana and was the first State Forester of Montana. Charles was appointed by Governor Edwin L. Norris in June of 1910.

Mr. Jungberg was a practical woodsman and prior to his appointment was employed by a lumber company as a logging foreman. In the first and second biennial reports to the Governor, he made some very commendable recommendations, many of which since have been established by law. Fire protection and trespass timber cutting were among their most difficult problems. He managed to make an excellent start in securing an inventory. There is a story that he, prior to appointment, once engaged in a fist fight on the streets of Polson. He must have been feisty.
