Forest Nursery Manager

Washington Department of Natural Resources
Tumwater, WA

This position is responsible for managing Webster Forest Nursery, one of the premier state forest seedling nurseries in the country. Our staff have grown and shipped over 900 million seedlings since the nursery was established in 1957. These seedlings have been planted on public, private, and DNR-managed forest lands throughout Washington and nearby states. Though we have invested heavily in our facilities, equipment, and staff in the last 15 years, we will continue to see investments in existing and new infrastructure, staff, and equipment. This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a highly functioning program which provides a critical public service into the next decade.

Webster Forest Seedling Nursery has 150 acres of tillable fields, 75,000 square feet of Argus climate controlled greenhouses, and an active research program focused on operational production of forest seedlings. Additional facilities at our 270 acre complex in Tumwater, Washington include 13 high capacity irrigation wells, 24 buildings containing 66,000 square feet, and a total asset value (facilities, equipment, and supplies) of $57 million.
