Evergreen Forests Mandates Investment Bank

News Release - 14th January 2005

EVERGREEN FORESTS MANDATES INVESTMENT BANK

Listed forestry investment company Evergreen Forests Limited announced today that it has mandated Forsyth Barr to advise the company on asset sale and recapitalisation options.

Company Chairman Peter Wilson said that "as announced at the Annual General Meeting on 29th October, the company had addressed revision of its cost structure but needed to strengthen its financial position".

Mr Wilson said "while debt has been reduced by $8.3 million since June, 2004, and costs have been cut, these steps have not proved to be enough under current market conditions. Investment banking advice would identify and progress available options and the Evergreen Board plans to meet initially with its advisors in February and report further to shareholders in the Interim Report to December 2004. This report is expected to be available mid March."

*************
