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.

Interested in Working with Us?

Torrent strives to hire all levels of experience and ages for its planting operations. New workers are integral for the industry, and by incorporating them into our company it provides an element of sustainability for future seasons. We believe there are many advantages to having a diverse range of experience throughout our crews. Our more experienced workers are able to share knowledge that you can only get in the field with less experienced workers, ultimately helping to create a more safe and ready workforce. By promoting diversity within our crews, we hope to create an environment which prompts curiosity and open dialogue, where everyone can learn something new from each other.

While silviculture has had a reputation of being a college or university students' summer job which helps pay for their education, it has become a career for many of our employees. Due to its high paying work it can provide stability, community, and an ever-changing work environment for those involved. Torrent also offers post-planting work such as fire work, medic work, brushing, and slash pile burning. Silviculture as an industry is constantly changing, but one thing that is constant is its draw to creative, hardworking individuals who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty.

Torrent is a SAFE certified company, meeting and exceeding highest safety standards within the industry. Through our 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.
