Most of all you enjoy being outdoors and are excited about working in an industry that offers you that opportunity.

    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:

    • Forest Management – Flag boundaries for streams, property lines, wildlife retention areas, and wildlife habitat features.
    • Orchard – assist with irrigation, tree tagging, weed spraying, vegetation control, and seeding fertilization.

    Who you will work with:

    Day-to-day you’ll work with our team of foresters, 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, engineering, GIS, and inventory.

    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.

    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.
