Growing a nation's goods

Just think how many of our goods start out as trees! The house you live in, the chair you sit in, the packages you buy merchandise in–even the paper this is printed on–all have started as a part of the forest. But these are only our everyday requirements. In addition, New Zealand is fast building a sizeable forest products export trade. Forest industries earn nearly half of the total income New Zealand derives from trade with Australia, and other markets are being developed progressively. The New Zealand Forest Service is planning even now for the twenty-first century. Private and farm planting … company afforestation, is being encouraged to help grow goods for the nation.

Watch your investment grow!
