Forestry, Fish and Wildlife Salary Survey

The Forestry, Fish and Wildlife Salary Survey reports compensation data for 106 benchmark jobs covering activities and services related to cultivating, raising, and harvesting timber and animals. The survey includes timber tract management operations and fishing operations and hatcheries. The industry survey is available by geographic area (US Region or US National) for $589.

The Forestry, Fish and Wildlife Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 8 executive and 98 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
