Fred the Forester is a series of books developed in New Zealand to explain how the forestry sector works in our communities and how the industry contributes a sustainable resource to both the world and New Zealand economy. Themes explored and explained include climate change, environment and forestry, where our pine forests go in New Zealand, the types of careers available in forestry and some of the new technologies employed in the industry. Each book contains hidden wooden objects as part of the story that readers can identify as they read, and puzzles, facts and activities to be completed. Learn about biology in our forests, how maths works for measuring trees, and how climate change is influenced by tree planting.
What is Climate Change?
This story starts off with Fred in a big city, wondering how much the environment has changed. He goes on a journey to learn what Climate Change means and how trees help to reduce the impact. At the end of the book are some word puzzles, math challenges and colouring-in pictures.
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.
