About Us

ESTABLISHED IN 1975, A+G Reforestation is one of BC’s oldest, well-respected ecosystem restoration and forest service companies. A strong commitment to respect, safety, and quality has made A+G one of the premier reforestation companies to work with in British Columbia, and all of Canada.

 

A+G remains one of the innovators of the silviculture industry, constantly updating and expanding its operations to reflect changes and opportunities in the forest industry as a whole. With jobs ranging from tree planting to forest fire suppression, it is A+G’s goal to offer seasonal workers a variety of employment opportunities throughout the year.

 

A+G is proud of its history and the integral role it has played in shaping silviculture in BC, and continuously strives to work with its staff and management to find new ways to improve workplace culture for everyone in the company, and industry-wide.

Management Team

   

CHRIS AKEHURST is one of the pioneers of tree planting in British Columbia. He planted his first tree in 1975, and helped turn the industry into what it is today. Since taking ownership of A&G in 1984, Chris has been a strong advocate for high employment standards and industry-best practices.

He has played a lead role in developing safety and training initiatives for the BC Forest Industry through his ongoing work with the Western Silviculture Contractors Association and the BC Forest Safety Council.

 

CARLO GALVANI began planting trees for A&G in 2000, and eventually took on the roles of foreman, supervisor, and project manager, before becoming co-owner in 2011.

Carlo has played an integral role in creating training programs relevant to silviculture workers province-wide.
