frankFrank Borden – Owner

I was born in Maine in 1945 and raised in Indiana. I graduated from Purdue University in 1967 and took a job with the Forest Service in California. Within three months after moving to California, I was drafted and spent the next two years with the Army, mainly in Germany. After leaving the Army, I resumed my Forest Service career. I left the Forest Service in 1981 to join Jim as a General Partner in Shasta Land Management.

My wife Robbin and I have been married since 1972. Robbin is a Registered Nurse working for Travel Nurses International. We have two grown children: Scott, born 1974 and Cyndi, born in 1976. Scott works in Redding as a finish carpenter and has a daughter, Desere, born in 1995. Cyndi works for a software firm, Pinpoint Technologies, in Boulder, Colorado and has a daughter, Leah, born 1997.

My non-forestry interests include outdoor activities, especially Baseball and rafting. I also enjoy professional football.
