Jason Rutledge, restorative forester

Keeper Jason Rutledge is a silviculturist. His passion is the health of our Appalachian forests. He is perhaps best known as a breeder of Suffolk Punch draft horses, which he uses to drag cut logs from the forests he trims. Originally from central Virginia, he lives with his two adult children, Jagger and Ashley, in eastern Floyd County.
