Spacing

Torrent Silviculture works closely with licensees for contracts in the BC interior and Cariboo-Chilcotin areas. Spacing and brushing runs from early summer, when the vegetation is at peak growth, to late fall until the snow falls. 

What is Spacing and Brushing?

Spacing is the cutting of undesirable trees, herbaceous and shrubaceous plants within a young stand to reduce competition among the residual trees for water, nutrients, and sunlight. Spacing and brushing are done to control density to meet tree growth objectives, meet biodiversity and wildlife habitat resource objectives, maintain or enhance forest health, manage species composition and stand structure, and increase stand value. Typically, the effects of reducing stand density are, an increase in growth of trees, an increase in juvenile wood production, and a reduction in the length of financial and technical rotations.

Are you Dedicated, Hardworking, and Adaptable?

Torrent strives to hire all levels of experience and ages. Nothing speaks to character like a good attitude. Our crews are made up of all experience levels. This allows for our experienced workers to share tips, to help with understanding dangerous situations, and to help share the knowledge that you can only get in the field. Diversity allows for everyone to learn something new for each other, and prompts questions and learning.

While silviculture has been stereotypically a college/ university students’ job; providing high paying work during the summer months to pay for one’s education, silviculture has become a career for many of our employees. It provides stability, community and a changing work environment for those involved. Silviculture as an industry is one that is ever changing and adapting. It employs creative, hardworking individuals who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and work hard.
