With a true passion for helping the fellow worker, one such document "Plant Fu" has been provided free throughout the industry, used updated and distributed internationally as a training guide amongst tree planters since 2008.
This guide and others have always been and will remain free, and can be reached by clicking below. However our personal consultation, one on one training and more detailed systems education and management are available for hire.
Each industry has it's specific products and tools. Ours is no exception.

Here's what other Industry professionals have to say about us.
Ryan Zapisocki Operations and Projects Manager, Windfirm Resources LTD
I have worked with Chris Montagner for over 10 years. Chris first started working for me as a tree planter. He instantly stood out as one of our very top performers. Chris excelled at the job with incomparable drive and work ethic. I acknowledged his leadership in performance and quickly promoted him to becoming a crew leader. In this role he also excelled as he has a natural affinity as a teacher and motivator. He took new and young workers and turned them into high performance employees with excellent quality results. Chris took initiative and took his time-tested methods of training employees into a written manual of sorts to share with the greater workforce. There have been generations of our employees and workers throughout the industry who have used his planting guide book (Plant-Fu) to come out and become excellent workers.
Our industry has a unique pay system that rewards hard work. It is a piece rate payment program that allows the hardest workers with the best work ethic and determination to earn the most. Chris has always been in the top echelon of income earners with us, and has created legions of planters who quickly rose to top earning potentials.
Chris and I share another work industry in Mountain Pine Beetle control. While I have done this for two decades and found my role as a quality inspector on behalf of the BC and Alberta regulating government departments, Chris took the more challenging path and became a professional production faller. In 20 years, I have worked with, and been witness to many fallers, and in this field Chris also excelled. His mental and physical strength and perseverance allowed him to become an extremely successful faller.
I have had the great pleasure of also developing a great and personal relationship with Chris throughout the many years we have worked together. I am proud to call Chris a friend and have thoroughly enjoyed watching him become a loving loyal father in the last few years. As his partner and daughter can attest to, he is truly a wonderfully engaged father who works tirelessly to provide for and spend time with. I have the utmost respect for Chris and will always consider him a friend. He will always have a special spot within our company if he ever needs it.
