Episode 10: Coast Range Contracting with Garth Hadley The Dirt: Confessions of a Tree Planter

Today I sit down with Garth Hadley of Coast Range Contracting, a well-known tree planting company in British Columbia. Often company owners are simply the name of their company to many planters, so I wanted to shed light on the person behind it all and what its like to run a planting company! We talk about Garth's own planting story, and his evolution throughout the tree planting industry to get to where he is today. We talk about all the changes he's seen over the years, and where he hopes to go with Coast Range into the future. Enjoy! PS. For anyone still wanting to get into planting this season, there may be a few spots left!

  1. We here at The Stranded Tree Farm (mostly me) have planted nearly 3000 trees over the past 9 summers. One at a time. Overall, I’ve planted close to 12,000 trees on land owned by myself, my father and my brother.
    But I can always learn from others. Cheers!
