Torrent Silviculture was started in 2006 by Davin Green.
We work primarily in the Cariboo region in the heart of British Columbia.
We believe in providing a solid foundation for people of all ages and experience levels. Working in a safe and timely fashion is of the greatest importance to us. Taking pride in your work and a job well done while having a good time is what its all about. While Torrent was primarily a tree planting company it has evolved over the past 13 years to provide opportunities for people looking to do more in the forest industry than just plant trees.
Torrent Silviculture is a SAFE certified company and we have maintained this title by implementing an all inclusive safety program. We believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that work is completed in the safest possible way. Workers are trained on all relevant topics at the beginning of the season and continuous training is provided throughout the season. All of our foremen have the necessary First Aid training required for their crew sizes and each crew has all of the appropriate First Aid equipment and vehicles on site in the event of an emergency. Torrent has an investigation process to investigate any injuries, incidents or near miss/close calls to help identify root causes and prevent future events from happening.
Our camps are all equipped to ensure proper hygiene and nutrition with appropriate safety equipment as necessary to provide a safe, clean and fun environment for everyone during their stay
Torrent Silviculture has always been and will remain a place for all levels of age and experience, we believe that diversity is key to learning. New workers are integral for the industry and incorporating them into our company provides sustainability for future seasons. Nothing speaks like experience though, from sharing tips to understanding dangerous situations experienced workers are a valuable asset. In having this variety we hope that everyone can learn something new.
We hope to provide those looking for it, a more stable, consistent income while still having the time to do what each person finds important in their lives.
Silviculture throughout the years has been seen as somewhat of a college/ university students job, providing high paying work during the summer months to pay ones way while getting an education. While we support this idea and see the importance of helping to fund the biologists, doctors, lawyers etc. of the world, we also understand that that is not everyone’s “cup of tea” per say. That is why over the past 13 years Torrent has worked to provide more opportunities for workers in the forest industry during the rest of the year. Torrent is involved with several aspects of forestry including; forest firefighting with the Ministry (usually overlapping with tree planting), brushing, herbicide spraying beetle probing, layout, slash pile burning and most recently, small scale logging. We hope to provide those looking for it, a more stable, consistent income while still having the time to do what each person finds important in their lives.
