About This Site
We want to make it easy for you to find your way around this site. If you have any suggestions or comments please email them to us.
This site is best viewed using Microsoft Internet Explorer version 5 or Netscape Navigator version 6. While you can still view the information using other browsers, the formatting (fonts etc) may not be as attractive. If you have earlier browser versions, you may wish to upgrade. We suggest your screen size is set at 800 x 600 for the best way to view this site.
As this site is continually being updated we recommend you do either of two things to ensure you are viewing the most recent version. You can refresh each page by pressing F5 (function 5) on your keyboard, or you can change your settings on Internet Explorer to automatically update your site. To change your settings click on the Tools menu, click Internet Options, then click Settings on the General tab (under Temporary Internet Files), select Every time you start Internet Explorer, and click OK.
(N.B If you are using Opera as your browser, you may not be able to view the contents drop-down menu. You will still be able to navigate the site from the site map on this page or you could use the search facility to find what you are looking for.)
A number of documents in this site require Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5 or later to read. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader you can get it free from the Adobe website at www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html. It will take some time to download onto your computer (the file size is 5.6Mb).
Once you have Adobe Acrobat Reader there are different ways you can view these documents.
You can either left mouse click on the relevant file to view these files immediately (they will open while you are online) or save/download the files to your computer for viewing or printing later (when you are offline). As some of the files on our website are relatively large we recommend you download them to your computer.
To download a file to your computer just right mouse click on the file, choose 'Save Target As', 'Save Page As', or 'Save Link As' and save the file to where you want for later viewing or printing.
Another option that may be available (depending on which browser you use) is to select 'Print ...' after the right mouse click to print the file immediately (without viewing it first).
There are four main sections in this site, the first contains general forestry information, the next current investment opportunities, then we have a section for new investors, and another for existing investors. The following navigation bar is found at the top of every page in the site.
Just run your cursor over the section titles which contain a drop down arrow to view the contents of that section.
Some of the sections in the drop down menu contain further sub-sections which are marked by a sideways arrow .
The section/page that your cursor is on will be a darker colour than the rest of the menu. Just click on the section/page that you are interested in.
Once you are in one of the sections it's easy to move around the pages in that section as each page contains a menu at the top of the page which looks like this:
Growing your wealth | Forest Profitability | NZ Plantation Forestry .....
The section you are viewing is in black, while the other sections are in blue.
There are also opportunities to move to different places within a page or sub-section or to go to other relevant areas of the site if you wish to. To do this you click on words or phrases in blue.
In most pages/sub-sections, we have included a way to get
back quickly to the top of the page and the menu - just click on the
Return to top
There is a further navigation bar at the top of every page (see below) which enables you to reach the homepage quickly, to contact us, to search the site, or to look up a term in the glossary.
