Tree planting is a job unlike any other. Those who plant face a long and unforgiving workday that would break most others. A proper training ensures a you are in proper form to plant all season long. Planters who follow the Fit To Plant Training Program planted 12% more trees and suffered 40% fewer injuries and illnesses than untrained planters.

It's a fact: the fitter the planter, the more trees they can plant. Although the effects of fatigue are inevitable, planters who followed this eight-week pre-season fitness program were able to sustain a higher planting rate.
