Job Description:

What the job is: As the Natural Resource Analyst, you will provide data analysis and support on valuations related to timberland acquisitions and divestitures, conservation and carbon projects, and other potential business opportunities.

Examples of the daily work associated with the job:


· Assist team members from diverse natural resource disciplines, regions, and forest types, with a central focus on the creation, application, and upkeep of yield data and analytical methods.

· Use Excel, Access, SQL, R, ArcGIS, and related tools to perform technical analysis with forestry data sets to develop yields of various forest cover types for harvest scheduling and carbon modeling.

· Use the details of log merchandising, carbon calculation, discounted cash flow models, and other tools used for valuations and other analytical projects.

· Work across various regions and forest types with potential travel to visit operations and active projects.


Who you are: You take pride in working for a company that aligns with your values of environmental stewardship through smarter forest practices. You value working forests and recognize the broader use they offer related to natural climate solutions. You have working knowledge of silviculture, forest inventory, forest growth and yield, forestry operations, and long-term planning. You have experience using Excel, Access, and other tools to generate growth and yield data. You are curious, have an eye for detail, are willing to try new things and ask questions to gain context to help you deliver a solid work product. Because of this experience, you can evaluate your work from a real-world perspective.

You have an undergraduate degree in forestry, biometrics, GIS, or related natural resource field, plus at least two years’ working experience or have completed a few practical internships. Or you may have an advanced degree in forestry, biometrics, geospatial analysis, statistics, economics, or a related field. In either situation, you have experience using analytics to help find solutions for natural resource problems.
