The Great Basin Institute, in cooperation with the US Forest Service (USFS) Stanislaus National Forest, is recruiting three Forestry Crew Members to work cooperatively with USFS and GBI staff to perform stand surveys within forest/woodland areas. Duties will include performing standardized timber cruising, and assisting in stand exam data collection. Data are gathered using standard instruments, direct measurements, observations, and on-site inspections. Forestry Crew Members will also assist in selecting and marking individual trees for harvest using well defined marking guidelines and silvicultural prescriptions. Training will be provided on tree-species identification, GPS data collection, tree marking, and other project-specific tasks.
A four-person forestry crew (one lead and three technicians) will perform this work in collaboration with USFS. A base camp site will be available for the duration of the season. Camping at work sites for several consecutive days may be required to meet project objectives.
