After planting for 13 seasons, nothing surprises you anymore. When things happen you just laugh it off and roll with it. In the end its another awesome/ridiculous story to add to the list. A list you don't realize you have until something happens and it makes you think of another story that starts with "this one time tree planting...".
I wouldn't trade these stories and experiences for anything in the world.

It's like you block out all the bad stuff and then it just hits you. I always tell people you have to try tree planting at least once in your lifetime. You think you know, but you really have no idea.

With the beginning of May also comes the beginning of another tree planting season in British Columbia’s interior. A place where spring is still arriving, and winter is taking its final punches. People from all over Canada and abroad filter into small towns anticipating what could be a life changing three month experience.
Saint Augustine once said, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” We aren’t arguing with the Christian theologian and philosopher, but these days seeing the world isn’t as easy to come by – it takes time and saving money. Whether you’re getting ready for your next trip or simply looking for inspiration on where to travel next, here’s 10 travel books that will get your imagination running wild:

Their ability to produce oxygen, cleanse the air, prevent soil erosion as well as providing a source of wood and fibre to name a few. However, not all trees come with such beneficial attributes.
