Positions: Tree planting
Type: summer jobs
Employer: Celtic Reforestation
Location: bush camps, we work all over Northern British Columbia.

Do you like trees? Do you enjoy being outside all day every day for 3 months straight? Does carrying 50lbs up a hill excite you? How about mosquitos, torrential rain, 60 new friends, nightly campfires and money only limited by your own potential? If yes - keep reading!

Hi there, my name is Kelsey, I am a Forewoman with Celtic Reforestation. I am looking to fill a few positions on my tree planting crew for the upcoming 2022 season. There is no experience needed – just a relentlessly positive attitude, a commitment to the entire summer and a love for challenges.

Some important details:

  • We are based out of Prince George, BC – however, our contracts take us all over the beautiful northern wilderness of British Columbia
  • The planting season begins early May and ends in late July/early August, this depends entirely on how fast we plant the trees
  • You are paid a piece rate: Tree price x How many trees you plant in a day = Your earnings
  • We work 3 in 1's, meaning 3 days on and 1 day off
  • We also work out of a bush camp which can be best described as 'glamorized camping' (i.e. you sleep in a tent all summer long - or your own vehicle if desired/possible, there are shower trailers, portable toilets, a cook shack, with cooks that feed you for every meal, and a communal canvas mess tent)
  • Sometimes we are close to cities or very smalls towns, however, it is not out of the ordinary to be an hour or more away from civilization with minimal to no cell service
  • Most days we take a truck to work but sometimes it's a helicopter – every day is a little different but also the same

Tree planting is an amazing way to make money, meet new people from different walks of life, and push yourself to limits you didn't even know you had. It's also an incredible opportunity to get outside and experience first hand Canada's forestry industry. It changed my life and it also paid off my student debt. If this position doesn't scare you but instead absolutely THRILLS you.. We might be a perfect fit and I cannot wait to talk with you.
