Patrick Bryson - General Manager

Patrick spent his early years moving between Europe and Canada finally settling on Vancouver Island.  He gained a wealth of experience managing silviculture projects after having spent 20 years as a member of the tree planting community in BC and Alberta.

Patrick has planted over 1 million trees, directly supervised the planting of over 24 million trees and supervised the brushing/spacing of over 4000 hectares.

With this vast experience, he has developed strong relationships with foresters across western Canada by providing a predictable workflow, implementing usable health and safety systems and policies while hiring employees which are second to none.

Health And Safety

Sampson Forestry understands that the strength of our company comes from our employees and clients.  It is our commitment to provide a safe and comfortable work environment on all of our worksites.

Employee and client involvement in the development of our health and safety policy and reporting unhealthy conditions and close calls is crucial in limiting accidents.

Safety is the direct responsibility of Owners, Supervisors and all Employees.

Sampson Forestry is SAFE company certified through the BC Forest Safety Council.

Training and Supervision

New employees are properly trained with a focus on the specific tasks they will be performing. The strong leadership of our supervisory team ensures all jobs are completed safely, at an acceptable quality standard and in a timely manner.

Every workday begins with a tailgate meeting to go over safety concerns and hand out maps, radios and first aid kits. Morning meetings promote dialogue and bring to light any inefficiencies, leading to solutions, leading to maximum earnings.

We encourage employees to take responsibility for every aspect of their job. Our past and future successes are reliant on our crews performing tasks at or above an acceptable quality standard and maintaining a sense of responsibility and pride in a job well done.
