Wood Procurement Specialist


Maryland & Delaware

The person in this position would specialize in working with private landowners to secure an adequate supply of timber for local Eastern Shore Forest Products mills. The need for this person is defined by, first, the continual need for timber that can be logged during wet times, and, second, by the fact that within 45 miles of Salisbury there are 145,000 acres of 21-60 year-old pine stands on private lands.

The position is “hands on” and requires an individual who likes and relates well to forest landowners and colleagues in the forestry community. Ideally, this person would be a graduate forester, a Maryland license requirement. However, a forest technician could do the work adequately if he or she has access to a licensed forester for project approvals.

Required training would include dendrology, silviculture, forest measurements, familiarity with various regulations and public forestry programs, logging, GIS, Microsoft Office competency, property surveys and wildlife management. Skills would include strong communications abilities, “people” skills, self-motivation and the capacity for hard work under occasionally challenging conditions.

The position calls for someone who can strike a balance between objectively advising and assisting forest landowners achieve their goals while clearly representing ESFP and seeking to acquire timber for the company’s operations. This is a position that will aggressively seek out timber from private lands. Success would be measured by timber acquired, with a tangible contribution toward the company’s need for over 200,000 tons of wood each year. Specifically, the person in this position would be responsible for:

  • Identify key landowners (i.e., larger ownerships, drier ground not currently represented by consulting foresters)

  • Initiate and maintain contact with key landowners to help assess their needs and goals and identify ways in which timber harvests might help achieve them

  • Establish strong working relationships with consulting foresters, state foresters, extension specialists and USDA “farm” agencies

  • Maintain a consistent communications effort directed toward private forest landowners and forestry professionals, including exploring ways for joint educational efforts with Maryland Forests Association

  • Work closely with support staff to maintain records of initial contacts with landowners, results and any needed follow-up actions

  • Assist, as needed with cruising, boundary marking and other fieldwork plus logging administration

  • Regular communications with ESFP managers to report progress and assure coordination with other functions of the company

  • Represent ESFP in local organizations that include forest landowners
