April 3 update
There is truly an amazing feeling of solidarity between all the contractors creatively working together on solutions to deal with this WTF COVID PIECE OF SHIT VIRUS THING!!!
In addressing this all the contractors are so fully aligned. We absolutely know with such certainty that we have an obligation to figure this out and do it properly.
I would especially like to thank Dave Wilson, from Celtic for inspiring us through his care and concern and leadership, and for kicking my ass into action. Thank you to Marc Hobday from Apex for all the incredible creative detailed work and patience and thoughtful and empathetic leadership. Thank you to both of you for all the work towards the Strategic Action plan and the incredible work into the Strategic action plan budget. In addition, I would like to thank Nathan Cullen for coming on board the team with such incredible insight and focus. He has consolidated our ideas and has been able to assimilate some big ideas into a credible and incredible Strategic Plan. This would not have been possible without him on this team. And it certainly not possible without my partners; OMG, their endless platience and detail on everything. I would especially like to thank both Jason Krueger and Mat Stachura for the endless hours of grinding, tireless work with the budget. It is phenomenal watching what these men can create and accomplish.
Today we presented the Strategic action plan. Thank you to Bruce Blackwell, John Betts(Executive director of the WFCA) and Timo Scheiber from Brinkman Resources. In addition I would like to thank all the contractors on the Working Group for participating with the compiling and reviewing the detailed information in the budget review, the strategizing, and endless hours of dialogue on how to address these issue. Thank you to: Jeff Lutes and Mark Courtney at Blue Collar, and Dean Marshall and Crawford Young at Spectrum Resource Group, Carlos Galvani and A+G, Garth Hadley at Coast range, Rick Ness and Ryan Zapisocki AKA Zap at Windfirm, Chris Howard at Whanaugirestry, Jim Logan at Folklore, Lasse Lutick at Hybrid17, Brett Henkel at Little Smokey, Tony Harris at Zanzibar, Bryn Kilb at Dynamic, Johnathan Clark AKA (Scooter) and William Sheepwash at Next Generation and an absolute outstanding thank you to Jordan Tesluk for countless hours of sharing, reaching out, connecting and caring for us as contractors together with the entire planting community.
This has been such a strong group for a Herculean task. We are not done yet!!! We have just completed step one. But know that we are in such strong alliance because we know in the deepest way that every planter is depending on us to be truely cared for and held in a safe place. We would like to also thank the input and support and direction of all the foresters and managers in the companies we work with. I feel very very Grateful. 🌲🙏🌲
