About Us

Wade Schalm

As a Certified BC Faller, Faller Supervisor-Bullbucker and Arborist Tree Specialist, Wade is skilled in all tree-related challenges. He began working with trees in the early 1980’s when he selectively logged a woodlot on his family farm in the Cariboo. He went on to work as a faller, a Level 3 first aid medic, a tree planter, a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, and a machinery operator for oil & gas, but he kept coming back to his passion for forestry.

Since then Wade has gained decades of experience throughout BC with specialty tree services and tree removal in Kamloops, Barriere, Clearwater, Merritt, Lillooet, and the Shuswap. In addition to residential tree services, Wade has assisted the Ministry of Transportation with building a hazard tree program, has provided work crews and utility arborists for power suppliers including BC Hydro, and has developed partnerships with interior First Nations bands. He has worked on the rugged BC Coast as a production faller-supervisor, in the BC interior with silviculture site-prep, and in northern Alberta fighting the ongoing Mountain Pine Beetle Epidemic. He has also been working in the jungles of Panama as a Danger-Tree Climber, training the local workforce in safe environmentally-responsible tree maintenance work.

Now based in Clearwater, BC, Wade employs these combined skills to provide the best possible service for safe production falling and residential tree services.

Jeremiah Meredith

Jeremiah has been working in forestry since the mid 1990’s where he worked closely with his family in a remote fishing lodge near Barriere as a mechanic, trail developer, and driver where he learned the value of customer care and service. Jeremiah gained experience through forest firefighting, oil & gas, residential site prep, arborist work, and as a member of the U.S. Army. He too returned to his passion working in the challenging forest industry throughout BC… from his home in Barriere to the Queen Charlotte Islands, and even to Washington and Oregon.

Jeremiah is a BC Certified Faller, Faller Supervisor-Bullbucker and OFA-3 medic. He has extensive experience falling blocks, constructing road right-of-ways and heli-pads, and managing crews to fight the Mountain Pine Beetle epidemic. Jeremiah works closely with Spartan’s employees to ensure they are trained to exceed industry standards and that clients are satisfied with efficient, professional and safe work environments.
