My Last Year of Treeplanting
For those of you who may not know, Treeplanting is a job in Canada, where you get paid to plant trees. Every spring thousands of young Canadians head out into the bush, and spend the summer destroying their joints for cash. You get paid by the tree, so the harder you work, the more money you make. With a good company, there is always the potential to make a surprising amount of money, with fast planters often averaging above 300 dollars a day.
Here is my friend Mike with a big bag of weed, and Phil, laughing about Mikes big bag of weed. "Oh no officer, I wasn't going to smoke it, thats my pillow."
Here are colin and some people waiting for the helicopter to drop a bunch of trees on them so they can get to work.
