New home building in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) continues unabated, despite the high financial and human costs of fighting fires in these areas.

Seasonal Tree Inventory Tech at Plan-It-Geo
We are looking for a seasonal, part-time candidate to assist with street and park tree inventory. An internship is also a possibility for anyone seeking that requirement for school. See attached description. We'd like to finish interviews in 3 weeks (mid-May at latest). The pay range is flexible and could be a little higher rate if the candidate is a contractor on a 1099 status. We're pretty flexible on level of experience, what # of hours and which days each week, etc. And we could likely pay for this person's ISA Certification if they're interested.
