Position Summary:

Join us as PP&R Urban Forestry's Street Tree Planting Program Supervisor. This position is funded as part of a historic investment in climate justice by the Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund. We seek to increase tree canopy and reduce urban heat in communities where trees are needed most: in low-income and low-canopy areas of the city, and in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities.

The Supervisor will lead the Free Street Tree Planting Program team, which manages the planting and establishment of thousands of trees annually in the public right-of-way. This position supervises 8 full-time tree planting specialists and multiple seasonal employees to plan, implement, and evaluate street tree plantings. You will hire, train, coach, and supervise your team to be proactive problem solvers and to implement the best practices of equity, public service, urban forestry, project management, GIS/database management, and contract management. The Supervisor will work closely with a leadership team to develop multi-year planting plans, manage contracts, ensure that all plantings meet quality standards, manage communication, and conduct outreach.

With ambitious goals to triple annual tree planting in the right-of-way in a few years, managing growth and change while maintaining quality will be a primary focus. We are seeking a supervisor who is skilled at mentoring and developing employee and contractor skills, as many team members will be new. The ideal candidate has demonstrated experience leading projects towards equitable outcomes.

What you'll get to do:

  • Hire, train, supervise, assign work to, and guide the street tree planting team, including full-time and seasonal staff.
  • Guide right-of-way site surveys to identify planting locations that meet planting standards.
  • Manage contractor street tree planting and establishment, including tree procurement, planting, watering, mulching, staking, and young tree structural pruning.
  • Develop staff, team, and program work plans and project schedules.
  • Ensure that tree planting and establishment meets the highest industry standards in terms of best management practices, safety, and quality.
  • Create and document practices and procedures for right-of-way site surveys, planting and establishment work, inspections, and contractor management.
  • Apply an equity and anti-racism lens to all work to intentionally create equitable outcomes.
  • Manage communication and outreach to diverse stakeholders, including property owners, community members, contractors, and city bureaus.
  • Train and mentor staff on contractor management, including adherence to contract specifications, invoicing, and problem solving.
  • Oversee tree monitoring and use findings for program improvement.
  • Ensure team data and records are well managed using tools such as ArcGIS, TreePlotter, Excel, and Smartsheet.
  • Lead development and expansion of tree planting programs in the right-of-way, with collaboration from staff and stakeholders.
  • Evaluate outcomes and refine our efforts for continuous program improvement and providing quality customer service.

Who you are:

  • Equity Focused: You use an equity lens to ensure that projects deliver equitable outcomes.
  • Collaborative Team Member: You help to foster an inclusive, respectful, and culturally responsive workplace.
  • Detail oriented: An organizer and planner who thrives on details and is uncompromising in consistency, quality, and accuracy.
  • Flexible and Innovative: You have an aptitude for continuous improvement and thrive in a collaborative and evolving team environment.
