Thank you for your interest in working with NNRG to strengthen the ecological and economic vitality of Northwest forests and communities! 


NNRG seeks a full-time Forester to develop forest management plans for NNRG’s clients and to participate in NNRG’s harvest, forest measurement and inventory projects, including marking, layout, and preparing Forest Practice Applications (FPAs). 

The position requires both office and field work, including site visits with landowners; use of forest inventory equipment to quantify stand conditions; timber marking for harvest; writing management plans; and creating GIS maps to accompany them. Landowner communication and client relations are central to the position.

This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of forestry in the region by showing how landowners can achieve both ecological and economic objectives through thoughtful forest stewardship. 

For details on how to apply, please see the full announcement. 

This position is open until filled; first review of applications will be on April 30, 2021.

Northwest Natural Resource Group seeks a forestry technician to assist with forest measurement, tree marking for commercial thinning, plot layout, and other forestry field work, 3 to 5 days per week. 

The ideal candidate has experience with basic forest inventory techniques, is adept at field work in a variety of challenging terrain and weather conditions, and maintains a professional and collegial attitude with co-workers and landowners. This position is approximately 90% fieldwork in all weather conditions. Experience with GIS software is beneficial, but not required. You must be comfortable working alone in the forest at times, and you will need your own vehicle to travel to work sites, largely located within a 2-hour drive of Tacoma. Travel time and mileage will be reimbursed. 

NNRG is following all applicable COVID-19 safety protocols, including social distancing while working together outdoors and driving separately to job sites.

Compensation for this position is $20 to $23 per hour, depending on experience. 

To apply, send a letter of interest, resumé, and the names of two references to: jobs / at / nnrg.org. Begin the subject line with the words “Forest Tech”. The position is open until filled; review of applications begins March 29. 

NNRG believes that organizations — much like forests — thrive on greater diversity. Applicants from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the forestry field are encouraged to apply.
