Between our operations in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Maine, JDI Woodlands had 124 summer students who planted over 13 million trees this year. These students are dedicated, hardworking and are helping regenerate the forest for the future.
We had the opportunity to sit down with some of our Planters this year and ask a few questions!
Meet Myranda Talbot, a second year tree planter with Irving Woodlands! Myranda just finished her second year of arts and science at McMaster University, and is attending Dalhousie University in the Fall to study Bachelor of Environmental Design. We asked Myranda what her motivation to tree plant was and this is what she said!
“A main motivator for me is the money of course, you can make really good money with this job. However, I feel like I’m making a difference with the sustainability of New Brunswick’s Forests which is really important to me.”
