Learn More: The Daily Routine

Wake up, head to the kitchen, grab some coffee and breakfast, make a lunch and get in the van. Your commute from the camp to worksite could be anywhere from 10 mins to 1 hour. You are then dropped at your cache with a few other planters to bag up and head into your piece. For most of the day you are on your own in your piece, maybe meeting up with others each time you head to the cache for more trees. Early in the season you can expect several visits per day from your crew boss to help you get on the right track. You might also be set up to ‘partner plant’ with a veteran planter as a learning method.
At 5:00 you are picked up again to head back to camp. A giant supper is served at 6:00, all meals are all- you-can-eat, and the rest of the evening is spent at the campfire, at the lake, in the mess tent, or wherever you want. Go to bed early and get ready to do it all again. We typically work a 5 and 1 shift for the spring plant, and on the day off you head to the nearest town. The goal is to provide as much opportunity as possible for motivated individuals in the 8-10 week spring planting season. If you’re interested in this challenge, or if you have more questions, hit ‘apply now’ to receive an email and a phone interview from one of our crew bosses. They will be able to answer any more questions you have and will help you show up ready for the incredible challenge and experience that is your rookie tree planting season.
