Quastuco Silviculture Ltd. (QSL) works out of the South Okanagan; one of the nicest places in the province. Although we cannot predict the weather, it is usually dry, sunny, and warm. We have access to some of the best rock climbing, hiking, and mountain biking in Canada. If you’re more interested in relaxing, our operating areas are surrounded by beautiful lakes, rivers, and beaches.
At QSL we plant a variety of land and densities throughout the season. The prepped land is primarily disc trenched and mounded at a minimum of 15c/tree. The raw ground is mandatory obstacle plant and goes for a minimum of 18c/tree. Fill planting blocks are planted at a minimum of 22c/tree.

Our mission is to become the dominant supplier of silviculture services in the South Okanagan by providing a cost effective, safe, high-quality service that contributes to the long-term health and wellness of the forests. One of the most important statements in the organization is QSL targets that each employee completes their employment with our company in equal or better health than when they started.
Being small provides a sense of family as the owners, Scott, Paula, and Bunky and our supervisors know all members of the crew. We have the ability to respond quickly to the needs of our staff and our clients.
Employee happiness, productivity, and health are extremely important to QSL. As a result, many different measures are taken to ensure that each planter reaches their goals. As are contracts are long term, we stay in Penticton for the entire season. We maintain a close relationship with Total Physio to ensure that injured planters have minimal missed days and can keep working with modified/light duty. With this QSL is working on providing yoga sessions every day off to help mitigate injuries. As well we know that food is held at a high priority when planting so we provide a weekly crew meal on the company during the month of June. This allows you to relax and refuel doing the toughest weeks of the season. Last but certainly not least your motel accommodation cost is covered.
We are looking for energetic, adventure seeking young individuals from across Canada on the lookout for a productive, fun, positive and caring culture.
