What is a hoedad? The term "hoedad" is actually derived from the implement that the workers use while preparing the soil and planting seedlings.
Planting trees is hard work. Follow some of the hoedads as they make their way through the forest planting seedlings.
Each hoedad carries a large number of seedlings in their canvas sack. Listen to the crackling needles under foot and watch the hoedads traverse the steep hillsides.
The foreman is the leader of the hoedad group. He is hardworking, diplomatic, and creative. Listen as the foreman discuss their plans and work through the logistics of the day.
