Trevor Jones - Forest Carbon & Geospatial Scientist

Trevor joined the NatureBank team in 2018 to build on in-house geomatics and forest carbon science capacity. Trevor oversees the geospatial and forest carbon components of international projects, supporting boundary delineation, land-cover mapping, carbon stock estimation, quantifying forest dynamics, and modeling future change and emissions scenarios. He has contributed towards projects in the Philippines and Costa Rica.

Trevor has 15+ years experience using remotely sensed data and field measurements to map, measure and monitor forested ecosystems in Canada, Costa Rica, Madagascar, the Philippines, the UAE, and the USA. In Madagascar, while working with the marine conservation NGO Blue Ventures, Trevor helped establish the Blue Forests Project leading to their flagship Plan Vivo conservation project in Velondriake (Tahiry Honko). Trevor also helped establish, manage, and currently advises UBC’s Professional course-based Master of Geomatics for Environmental Management (MGEM) Program.
