Dogs save silviculture workers in close calls with bears:September 27 2014

Two reports so far this year of workers’ dogs saving them from predatory bear attacks. Both incidents involved supervisors working alone or at a distance from partners. One incident involved a grizzly stalking the worker who likely would not have seen the ursus horribilis threat if her young dog had not alerted her. She had just enough time to summon help and get to her truck. In another situation a supervisor looked up from the task at hand to see a black bear charging him. As the bear closed in the workers’ dog intercepted him in full flight deflecting the attack. There was no evidence in either case suggesting the dogs attracted the bears.


Related to these close calls all workers should engage in the morning crew chorus of cacophony when they reach the block, testing their truck horns, whistles, lungs etc. to warn off the local fauna.

Some like it HOT!

So I was sweating it out in my Bikram Yoga Class the other night and I looked over and saw one of our Tree-Planter.com stickers on a fellow yogis water flask.

A big smile crept upon my face at the sight!  It seemed fitting that a treeplanter would gravitate to a hot yoga class as it is one of the most grueling exercise classes imaginable both physically and mentally.

Once again, I was reminded that if you can survive as a treeplanter...you can do anything.

I encourage you to try out a Bikram Yoga class.  Trust me, it'll be hard. But if you've endured a few seasons treeplanting, you'll be fine.  It's all mind over matter.

Here's a link to the best water flask we've ever tried and tested.  We tried out the Hydroflask and they rock but they won't deliver to Canada :(

Pounding for Pemba - Canadian tree planters have raised over $22,000 this summer and over $130,000 to date, helping break the cycle of subsistence farming and build local economy on a small African island.

Bucking the millennial stereotype, tree planters from all corners of Canada go North to pay student debts and make money. Now they’re giving it away.
