“Wood is Good” is a forestry and log transport programme developed for primary schools in New Zealand and funded by sector groups and the Ministry for Primary Industries.
“Wood is Good” is a tailored array of activities, videos, publications and demonstrations that are delivered to primary aged students to educate them on the valuable benefits of forestry. These include environmental topics, carbon storage, climate change, wood products and how plantation trees are grown and harvested in our country. Local log transport providers and forestry company professionals will deliver these sessions at your school and talk about what they do.
View a log truck, talk about logs and trees, find out how forests are and cared for, find out how forestry is valuable to your community.
Make sure you also take advantage of the published book series “Fred the Forester” which informs students about forestry – great for classroom reading sessions.
Funded by Ministry for Primary Industries and the Forest Growers Levy Trust.
