IAMA a veteran treeplanter of 7 years and planted more than 3 quarter of a million tree in British-Columbia. AMA
Edit: May I thank everyone for this awesome IAMA experience! You've all inspired me! If you have still questions, please go ahead.
I've been treeplanting as a living for the last 7 years in British-Columbia and Alberta (started in 2004 at aged 19). I have a simple, yet, very fulfilling life. Treeplanting may sound hard to some people, but it's definitely the best job out there. I have seen it all, to the dirtiest hippy to the most remote locations in British-Columbia. It has now became a great lifestyle! Pushing all limits and of course I learnt a lot about myself.
I'm writing this post as I am nostalgic today. I might not return for this passion of mine, first time in 7 years. I am joining another project this summer. I am sad and happy to have planted more than 3 quarter of a million tree. This is my way to give back to Mother Nature, meet the most energetic people, create life-friendships and live in the most remote regions of BC.
Also you can meet my team. I love you all!!!. I pay tribute to all people who do their parts for Mother Nature, whatever passion you follow.
Edit: Thanks for all your questions/feedbacks. I will try to answer everyone
Edit: Have a look for yourself of what we do. Friend's good video on treeplanting (try to spot me)
Edit: For those who don't believe me. It's alright. But let me point out that we plant average 2000/3000 seedlings a day in the planting season (april to late july). I did that for 7 years.
