Forest Health Monitoring Field Crew Leader – Burlington, VT /Northeast

Forest Health Monitoring Field Crew Leader
Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative
Burlington, VT /Northeast

The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative (FEMC) seeks to fill field crew leader positions for our Forest Health Monitoring crews based in New England and New York to inventory and measure forest plots as part of the Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) Program. Annually, the FHM program collects data on forest stand composition and structure, canopy condition and crown health, crown closure, tree regeneration, and forest stressors and threats using a variety of field collection tools and protocols.
Crew Leaders will be working with two technicians. The Crew Leaders will train in Burlington, VT with FEMC staff and the VT Department of Forest Parks and Recreation to inventory and assess forest plots as part of a statewide forest health monitoring program. Following training, work will be conducted throughout the New England and New York region.
Crew Leaders will be expected to plan daily trips, facilitate tasks, maintain their crews schedule, maintain equipment, conduct field work, provide and receive constructive feedback, and work with the FEMC database to get data entered prior to the end of the field season. Crew Leaders will be responsible for making judgment calls in the field when problems arise, and knowing when to elevate issues to program staff. Crew Leaders will need to submit weekly reports on their crew’s progress at the end of their work week.
