Why Plant with Us
Every year a wave of wilderness athletes wash over deforested lands planting millions of trees, leaving new forests in their wake. We celebrate tree-planters everywhere, especially those who continually return, becoming professional tree planters who have planted over hundreds of thousands of trees with their strong hands.
Why Work With Us?
Each season, we hire well over a thousand hard working and motivated people to plant, tend and restore forests and other ecosystems across Canada.
We know that our employees are entirely responsible for our success, and we act accordingly. As a result, Brinkman has one of the highest return rates among tree planting companies. Working with us, you will find a unique experience that balances a professional work environment with a lot of fun.
What Brinkman Does Well
a great camp life
Our camps are organized, fun and social. Brinkman’s cooks are top notch, providing you with lots of delicious, nourishing food that powers you up for the whole day. A larger company means that you get a comfortable and fully functional bush camp – hot showers are a necessity, not a luxury!
High earning potential
We offer industry-leading payouts – excellent prices, appropriate for ground conditions. Our full-time payroll team makes sure you are paid every two weeks by direct deposit and they are always available to answer questions.
And you will get paid! Brinkman is a diversified and well-financed company with a long-term vision. We’ve been around since the start, and we will be here well into the future.
Our supervisors and support staff are highly experienced. Our crewleads are exclusively non-commission, and this helps create a fair and equitable working environment in terms of allocating land, quality control and ensuring time for training.
We execute smart and efficient organization, which means the minimum of wasted time to make the most of your day, and leave more money in your pocket.
Because of our strong client relationships, reliable service and depth of industry knowledge we’re in a position to choose which contracts we want – and which we don’t. Most of our projects are with long-term clients who appreciate the level of quality we provide. For our workers this means excellent prices and known projects. We don’t underbid just to accumulate work.
comprehensive, ongoing training
Our training program is second to none. We want to get you up to speed as soon as possible – generally within 10 days of your arrival in camp. Brinkman provides excellent and extensive training to first year planters, as well as skills improvement coaching for experienced planters. We believe that everyone can work safer, better, faster and more efficiently with the right training and support
Safety is not just something we talk about – we operate to the highest industry safety standards, while continuously advancing our programs accordingly. All our employees are trained in our systems to operate as qualified safe workers. We stand by our award-winning Health & Safety Program which guides us in providing a safe, injury-free workplace for everyone.
Reasonable work hours
Brinkman works a reasonable work day - 7 am to 5 pm in most regions. And we usually works three or four days on and one day off – a work schedule that has proved to be the most productive, as well as the one least likely to result in planter injury. This means you will have the energy reserves to work a longer season and make more money. Depending on the contract, logistics or client requirements, sometimes we will need to work extra days, longer hours, or a different schedule.
Lots of work
As the only company that operates tree planting projects in Ontario, Alberta and BC, we can offer experienced workers extended seasons through easy mobility between regions, and lots of work available – planting and otherwise! We can accommodate workers’ schedules, whether they want a 130-day season, or just one short contract.
