Forestry Work – Rangiora, North Canterbury

Forestry Nursery Work – Tree Lifters needed for the Winter Season
We are a family-owned forestry tree nursery based in North Canterbury near Christchurch. We specialise in growing trees. This season we are looking for some super keen people to help with the uplifting of small pine trees. Tasks will include the pulling up of young pine tree seedlings (approx. 30cm in height), carrying boxes and loading tree seedlings on to trailers. The job is outdoors over the winter and is physically demanding so it requires applicants to be extremely fit and self-motivated.
Typically, we work 5 days per week (Mon-Fri). For Tree Lifters there is potential to earn good money on contract/piece rates e.g. $40-50/hr plus holiday pay.
Applicants must:
· Want to work hard and have fun while doing it.
· Be able to commit to the full season (i.e. 20th May-mid Sept).
· Have own transport and accommodation.
· Have outdoor work experience in horticulture or agriculture.
· Have a valid WHV or NZ Citizenship/Residency.
· Have a NZ Bank Account and IRD Number.
· Be reliable and able to work the hours and days required.
