I’ve known friend Phil Audet since 1991 and planted with him over many years in both BC and Alberta.
This guy always planted consistently good quality and was able to plant/foreman for over 15 years.
If Phil doesn’t make the Hall of Fame, no one deserves to…
In terms of consistent good quality, longevity, and making tree planting enjoyable, I would put Phil in higher regard than any planter I’ve met in my 8 years of planting experience.
I also planted many years with Geoff Newton, also well deserved guy to be in the Hall of Fame (he plays a mean guitar and can out drink any human alive when the whiskey bottle comes out)

Phil’s just been using the shovel for as long as anybody I know, and doing it all with a smile and a good all around attitude… He’s just a classy human being who deserves to be on the list.
