Intern will also work with iTree software to report on the social and economic benefits of Seattle’s street trees. The position will help the student understand how their coursework translates into the daily operations of a city urban forestry division, in particular, the collection of data and entry into the tree inventory, and analysis of GIS data to determine planting potential throughout the city.
The position is open all students, undergraduate and graduate students, who are enrolled in an accredited educational program preferably studying Forestry, Urban Forestry, Landscape Architecture, Arboriculture, Horticulture, Natural Resource Management or with sufficient tree identification knowledge.
