UNH Extension Seeks Field Specialist

     This position is based at the Hillsborough County Cooperative Extension office in Goffstown, N.H., and leads UNH Extension’s educational, technical and volunteer programming in urban forestry and ecology. New Hampshire is becoming more urbanized, with urban areas projected to increase to over 10% of the state by 2060. Urban and community trees and forests provide a variety of ecological, social and economic values including reduced stormwater runoff, air pollution mitigation, noise reduction, improved air quality, heat island mitigation, carbon sequestration and improved quality of life for communities. A recent Arbor Day Foundation study estimates that N.H.’s urban trees add an estimated $356 million to property values across the state. The Extension field specialist in urban forestry and ecology will engage community leaders and volunteers in training and projects related to tree planting, pruning, care and maintenance, community tree inventory and arboriculture, and enhancing ecosystem services provided by urban and community trees and forests.
