Job Description

Full Time:

Number of Workers Requested:
5
Job Duties:
All work will be conducted on the A&E Christmas Tree farm this season. The season will begin with the planting of seedling fir trees by clearing an area with the use of a planting shovel, digging a hole large enough that when the seedling is placed in the hole there is no J root as a result. The roots are then covered and netting is placed around the newly planted tree to protect it from wildlife. The newly planted trees are then fertilized. The existing Christmas trees are pruned, sheered, and shaped with the use of hand sheers and cutting tools. Workers will dig and remove the roots and stumpage that were left after last seasons harvest of Christmas trees. Beginning November 1, 2022, the harvesting of the Christmas trees will begin. The trees selected for harvesting range in size from 6' to 8' from the top to the cut and range in weight from 60lbs up to 75lbs once cut down. When needing to lift items weighing more than 50 pounds, use two or more people to lift the load. The trees are cut with the use of a chainsaw that weighs 30lbs and must be carried throughout the farm, going from one tree to another. The trees are then stacked onto a pile and removed from the area with the use of a sling. The trees are then transported to a staging area where they are individually bailed and loaded by hand onto a truck for transport to the various wholesaler locations. Once harvesting is completed, workers will clean the farm area and staging area of all debris and finish the removal of roots and stumpage as required. Todo el trabajo se llevará a cabo en la granja A&E Christmas Tree esta temporada. La temporada comenzará con la plantación de abetos de plántulas limpiando un área con el uso de una pala de plantación, cavando un hoyo lo suficientemente grande como para que cuando la plántula se coloque en el hoyo no haya una raíz J como resultado. Luego se cubren las raíces y se coloca una red alrededor del árbol recién plantado para protegerlo de la vida silvestre. Luego se fertilizan los árboles recién plantados. Los árboles de Navidad existentes se podan, cortan y moldean con el uso de tijeras manuales y herramientas de corte. Los trabajadores cavarán y quitarán las raíces y el tronco que quedaron después de la cosecha de árboles de Navidad de la temporada pasada. A partir del 1 de noviembre de 2022 comenzará la recolección de los árboles de Navidad. Los árboles seleccionados para la cosecha varían en tamaño desde 6' a 8' desde la parte superior hasta el corte y varían en peso desde 60 libras hasta 75 libras una vez cortados. Cuando necesite levantar artículos que pesen más de 50 libras, use dos o más personas para levantar la carga. Los árboles se cortan con el uso de una motosierra que pesa 30 libras y se debe llevar por toda la finca, yendo de un árbol a otro. Luego, los árboles se apilan en una pila y se retiran del área con el uso de una honda. Luego, los árboles se transportan a un área de preparación donde se achican individualmente y se cargan a mano en un camión para transportarlos a las distintas ubicaciones de los mayoristas. Una vez que se complete la cosecha, los trabajadores limpiarán el área de la granja y el área de preparación de todos los escombros y finalizarán la eliminación de raíces y troncos según sea necesario.
