Oh treegod, why have you forsaken me? Nate, lock me up... i've been very, very bad! But truth be told: the truth of the matter is that his object was to insult a lot of people ... no it wasn't.

Re: Nechako Reforestation Services Ltd.

there are more planting companies in PG cos PG has more crownland woodlot. every city or town has a designated area where the mills in that town can log and replant. PG's is huge. so i wouldn't argue that planting companies set up there just to fuck you over, they set up like anyone else would do......

Re: Western Pacific

Bahadur Lidder is the indian guy who has West Pac in his name and he owns the RiverRock Pub on the westside. He employs Dave Callan to do all his dirty work in the silviculture industry. The supervisors the previous post were talking about were part of the african crew from senegal and the congo. Th...

Re: Western Pacific

Yes they were... everything out of Quesnel. The checkers were cimco and they eventually dropped the contracts they had with West Pac because Dave Callan routinely blew his top when West Pac routinely failed block quality. He never said anything to us, the planters, yet i heard all about his shouting...

Re: A&G

it is well organised and good prices but they expect PERFECT trees. nothing wrong with that i suppose. everything was fine until me and some friends left because it was just too serious and no fun. we weren't under contract and it's not against the law if you want to quit yet after a few weeks of th...
