Various tidbits of this industry.

A company recently wrote me a letter expressing interest in cooperation, that they wanted to do something for the environment but only had a little bit of money. To which I eventually responded: what’s a subscription box? i just need a clear plan. right now i have no clue what you are offering. there are […]

A highballer (fast planter) can make from $250-500 a day, which makes this job seem appealing. It was the highest paying job I could find for the summers when in university. But it is also one of the ten toughest jobs in the world. I once spoke with a camp cook who worked in the construction industry […]

I have planted for seven summers, two of them eight months long, and have usually found myself […]

I couldn’t find much on the internet, but I believe treeplanting started or matured the fastest in New Zealand, where they would have run out of trees much earlier than in larger countries. For many years in Canada, and apparently still the practice in the US, trees were planted in unison by a row of […]
