The Eastland Wood Council ‘s new Wood is Good forest industry education programme.
“Wood is Good” is a forestry industry and road safety education programme, which features “Fred The Forester” books, “Share The Road” and other collateral like videos and vests.
The Eastland Wood Council (EWC) joins the other regional wood councils to form a national roll out of the Wood is Good programme, which is assisted through funding by Te Uru Rakau.
EWC’s goal is to deliver the Wood is Good programme to at least 8 schools across the region in 2021. The focus will be on East Coast and rural schools, especially schools that see log trucks every day and communities where forestry employs a high proportion of the people.
