Senior Forester – New England Forestry Foundation
The Senior Forester will lead NEFF’s Forestry Team including regional and national efforts to advance Exemplary Forestry as a powerful natural climate solution. The Senior Forester will be a member of NEFF’s senior leadership team and supervise 3-5 science and forestry staff to design, implement, monitor and assess implementation of relevant NEFF programs. This position will lead efforts to bring Exemplary Forestry to NEFF’s extensive forestlands and work with NEFF staff, external partners and forest landowners to support on-the-ground implementation of our overall Exemplary Forestry program objectives.
A primary focus of this position will be design/implementation of NEFF’s USDA-funded Climate-Smart Commodities (CSC) Partnership project as integrated with the ongoing work of NEFF’s Exemplary Forestry Center. Work will involve each of the three main areas of NEFF’s CSC program, including design and implementation of climate-smart incentives; monitoring, verification and reporting; and support for climate-smart sourcing for wood markets.
