Planting Pines

Just got off the phone for a job planting pine trees. $100 per thousand,3000 trees. not to bad for a 2 day job I wasn't even looking for. If I like it might add that to my services.

The experience of planting may be good but the money seems to be super low.

You will be bent over all day for squat!

Did you bid the job at that or did they offer you the $100 per 1000?

You would think it should be a lot more than that. I don't know exactly how much more but jeez, at least more!!

So you think you can pant almost 200 saplings an hour, based on an 8 hour day? Barnum was right.
