The Maryland Forest Service is currently accepting applications for two Tree Planting Supervisors to implement the 5 Million Trees Initiative, a 9- year program established by the 2021 Tree Solutions Now Act. Positions will supervise up to 5 Tree Planting Specialists and planting or landscaping contractors installing planting projects and performing maintenance on tree plantings, coordinating work-planning and grant budgeting. Positions will also perform field work similar to Tree Planting Specialists: reach out to and engage with community groups and landowners to expand interest in tree planting, plan and conduct tree plantings, and support continued care and management of trees and forests. Supervision and work may include tree seed collection with volunteers or staff. Projects will be on public and private land, and cover urban and rural settings. Particular focus will be on urban, underserved areas most in need of trees for human health and environmental benefits. The positions will be part of the 5 Million Trees Team, supervised through either the Urban/Community Forestry or Stewardship Programs, and will work in field offices with regional forestry staff.
