For Planters, Equipment and Additional Resources

We believe it is important that planters come prepared for the season in all aspects. Planters need to be ready both physically and mentally to prevent missed days. Time loss impacts both the company as well as individuals. We encourage employees to be aware of their rights within the industry. Below are some resources to help ensure that everyone has a successful season.

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.

Torrent is a SAFE certified company, meeting and exceeding highest safety standards within the industry. With our generalized training, dedicated crew bosses and supervisors, and in-depth anti-harassment training, we pride ourselves in creating a safe space for all genders, sexual orientations, races and religions.
