Hey Tree-Planter.com!

 

I've got some planting shots from this summer’s season working for Shakti Reforestation. We were working in a fly in camp for 60 days, 70 some km east of High Level, Alberta. I've planted for a lot of companies, all vehicle access, and none of them came close to having the same feel as the fly in. It felt like that one added element that tree planting needs to make it that much more raw. No phones, no internet, no laundry (just a river). The connections grow stronger with the whole camp when you don't have the option of driving into town on your day off.


Experienced Planters Looking for a New Gig

Ahoy experienced planters! If your looking for a new crew and company. I'll be running a six-pack this spring/summer season. Great land and great prices with Rhino Reforestation!

 

We will be working out of Northern BC & Alberta for the season. Projected start dates will be the last week in April till the first week in August. This will be my first year as foreman and I'm very thrilled to become part of it. I've been known to be the camp comedian, also a comedian in life. Not only that but I'm loyal and honest.

This will be my first year as foreman and I'm very thrilled to become part of it. I've been known to be the camp comedian, also a comedian in life. Not only that but I'm loyal and honest. I'm currently taking time off from University to work, travel and make my dreams come true. Studied in Tourism Management on the wonderful Vancouver Island. I'm working my way to someday opening up my own guiding and forest/ocean lifestyle company ("Mahoney Industries"). Always looking to make and hear those great laughs! I feel that being a foreman is a lot like being a coach. It's my job and duty to make my planters be/feel safe, valued, loved, and to help them earn as much as they possibly can! I'm looking to make a team this season with likeminded people. I'm trying to make it balanced 50/50... 3 Girls & 3 Boys. You must have a great since of humour, work ethic, good taste in music, shower regularly, enjoy dogs (Crew dog- Little London Lipshitz), be both a quality & numbers planter and above all be goal minded. I will work my buns off and I request that from my team. Things that I promise this season are gut breaking laughs, fun story telling/sharing,crew swag, great income, new friends, and surprises with rewards. If this feels like something that you would like to be apart of please don't hesitate to email. I look forward to meeting and laughing with the Ma Honey's Bunny's team of 2015. I would prefer if planters with 2 or more seasons under their belt join. 
Happy planters + cheerful boss = a successful season!! 
Cheers,

So, you have looked through the website and you have learned about tree planting. Hopefully we did a good job to test your resolve and show you what it takes to be a successful tree planter.

 

Now it's time to check out the companies that are hiring. Look to the main navigation, it contains a link titles "Companies". Go look around for the best gig in town and then put you best foot forward.

 

One tip. Always remember that these are companies. They earn their living by planting lots of trees. Put your best foot forward and tell them why they should invest in you.

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 :(
