One morning Fred is woken by a crashing sound. He peeks out the curtains and sees the pine trees on the farm, his favourite place to play, being taken down by a logging machine. Fred is horrified but soon learns all about harvesting, replanting and the wonderful uses and benefits trees have. This book contains facts from the Forestry Sector in New Zealand and depicts part of the story of our renewable resource, along with the industry that cares for its growth and use. There is also hidden wooden objects on each page to try and find. Check the key on the last page to see if you found them all. At the end is also a word find, colouring, a maze, and some forestry facts about New Zealand.
