The Great Basin Institute, in cooperation with the US Forest Service (USFS) Pacific Southwest Region, is recruiting a Forestry Crew Lead to work cooperatively with USFS and GBI staff to perform vegetation management and restoration projects 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. The Forestry Crew Lead will also select and mark 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 4-5-person forestry crew (one lead and 3-4 technicians per crew) will perform this work in collaboration with USFS. Leadership responsibilities will include communication with USFS and GBI staff, maintaining safety awareness and practices in the field, scheduling, logistics, and overseeing fidelity to methods and quality of outcomes.
Camping at a work site for several days may be required to meet project objectives.
