During this internship you will learn how a working forest is managed; below are a few examples of the kind of work you’ll gain exposure to:

  • Assist in marking harvest unit boundaries, unstable slope and aquatic resource buffers.
  • Assist in road layout and harvest unit design.
  • Traverse proposed road locations and unit boundaries with a survey grade GPS unit.

If any of this is new to you, that’s ok, we’ll teach you everything you need to know to safely do your work.

Who you will work with:
Day-to-day you’ll work with our team of layout engineers, who will train you on everything you need to know throughout your internship. You’ll also have the opportunity to interact with other departments across the division including operations, biology, forestry, GIS, and inventory.

Where you’ll work:
The Washington internship is located in Mason County along southernmost tip of Puget Sound near the foothills of the Olympic National Forest. Our office is in the historic city of Shelton where the Green Diamond family legacy began.

Who Green Diamond is:
We grow and nurture forests, a renewable resource to build homes, schools, and household necessities, harnessing carbon every single day we operate. We’re a family-owned company that is guided by our values of environmental stewardship and supporting our local communities. We do what’s right, even when it is the harder path to follow. We focus on the health and safety of our people first – by taking care of all our resources, we plan to be here for another 130 years.
