RE:  TIMBER MANAGEMENT FORESTER ON THE HIAWATHA


The Hiawatha National Forest is seeking a Supervisory Forester (timber) GS-0460-11 for the Saint Ignace and Sault Ste Marie ranger districts.  Duty location is Saint Ignace, Michigan.

This position reports directly to the district ranger with responsibility to lead the timber program.  This position is commonly referred to as the Timber Management Assistant Ranger or Timber Management Officer.  The very active timber program carries out management in a wide variety of forest types: managing northern hardwoods with complex prescriptions, clearcutting jack pine for the rare Kirtland’s warbler and other species, regenerating aspen, harvesting in forested wetlands while minimizing impacts to soil and water resources, and thinning or regenerating valuable CCC red pine forests, a legacy of decades of Forest Service management of these lands.  The program looks for opportunities to trade goods for services using stewardship contracts, notably to meet fuels objectives in the wildland-urban interface over the last several years.  The Forest also has several years of working with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources utilizing a Good Neighbor Authority (GNA) agreement and recently began a GNA agreement with a local Tribe as well.

There is a strong team in place, both within the timber work group and across all the program areas on the two districts.  Close coordination with timber sale administration, engineering, silviculture, fuels program, wildlife, recreation, and other resource specialist staff members leads to a lot of success accomplishing integrated projects across the landscape.  The work is fulfilling and provides a real opportunity to make a difference in these rural communities.


Please share with anyone who might be interested in this opportunity.  

Response to the outreach is requested by June 4, 2021.  

**Note: These are two good forester work areas on the east side of the Hiawatha National Forest. Some 60 years ago I started my forestry career with the USFS as a forester on the Sault Ste Marie Ranger District from 1961-63 and then from late1963-67 I served as the Assistant District Ranger on the St. Ignace Ranger District. St Ignace was a fun town to live in.
