If you've never planted before, this publication will give you a good visual understanding of what is involved with a job planting trees. If you've struggled to figure out how to show your parents or family exactly what it is that you do, this would be an ideal way for them to learn, with both photos and short explanations.
The book shows photos of several dozen of the planters that I've been lucky enough to work with over the past two years. I also have a lot of photos of the blocks, the camps, and the equipment that we use. All the photos were taken in the Interior of western Canada.
There are two print editions of this book available (softcover and hardcover). There are also various digital editions at very attractive prices.
Here's a link to the print editions on Amazon's Canadian website:
Full-Colour Hardcover (about $70): www.amazon.ca/dp/1999016807
And here are links to digital eBook versions:
Google Play ($3.99 Cdn): play.google.com/store/books/details?id=uUvcDwAAQBAJ
Incidentally, I have a separate photo book specifically devoted to coastal tree planting. The title of that book is, From Our Footsteps, Giant Forests Grow. Also, don't confuse either of my photo books with Step By Step: A Tree Planter's Handbook, which is yet another book that is used throughout Canada as a training and reference manual for new tree planters. There are videos to describe each of those separate books at the bottom of this post.
