Shakti began as a renegade crew of highballers, then evolved into a diverse community where all tree planters are welcomed, heard, and respected. This was a learned experience over many years and which still continues change and grow in amazing ways.
Shakti is a small company of about 20 people with a great network of vets, clients, and friendships from tree planting in Alberta since 1998. We specialize in niche reclamation projects. Our planting work is from early May until August. We pay high prices, 16-25 cents per tree. Planters have a lot of independence and responsibility, we make choices together. If we have room, all planters are welcome, and always glad to hear from you regardless.
Shakti is great for people who:
=> Value learning, independence, real-life tasks.
=> Are funny and interesting to hang out with.
=> Like to make great money for working smarter 🌳️🌲️🌿
In 2020 our average tree price was 19 cents in Alberta, on reclamation soil with no stumps.
Hourly paid planters averaged $340 per work day with no camp cost.
Our managers often make over $10,000 per month, and they’re worth every penny.
