Treeplanting is a job that often takes place far away from the comforts of cities, but the last month has been truly remote. Known as a “fly-in”, the first stages of this treeplanting season have been spent well off the grid with the camp and planting sites accessible only by helicopter. It has been extremely difficult, therefore, to post regular updates. Though I have been shooting continuously for nearly four weeks, for the sake of continuity and storytelling I will limit these first images to the pre-season: the setup time before the actual planting of trees is done. Following posts should be much more regular and will start to examine the job itself.
