    CALGARY, June 7 /CNW/ - Maple Leaf Reforestation Inc. ("Maple Leaf") is
pleased to announce that the company has signed a sales contract (the "Sales
Contract") for $6,200,000 RMB (approximately $850,000 CAD) with Sanya Zhonghai
Fishing Co. Ltd. ("Sanya Zhonghai"), PRC, to purchase a variety of the
Company's tree seedlings.
    Under the Sales Contract, "Sanya Zhonghai", located in Sanya City, Hainan
Province, a local privately owned company in the businesses of fishery,
forestry and agriculture, will purchase starting in September 2007 through to
September 2008, approximately 6,315,000 seedlings in 3 separate deliveries. In
September 2007, the 2,105,000 seedlings purchased will be a variety of
existing seedlings currently under cultivation within the Company's nursery
facilities. The seedlings sold are varieties of Colorado Spruce (1,008,000),
White Pine (45,000), White Spruce (7,000), Jack Pine (390,000), Larch
(210,000), Scots Pine (445,000). Subsequent deliveries in early 2008 and
September 2008 will be propagated inside the greenhouse and grown to 20-30
centimeters to fulfill the varieties of 2,105,000 seedlings to complete each
delivery for the Contract. Under the Contract, Sanya Zhonghai is required to
make cash payment to the Company's bank account prior to the shipment of each
delivery of seedlings.
    Mr. Clarke, Chairman & CEO of Maple Leaf, is pleased that this "large
sales contract," allows the Company to sell many of its existing seedlings,
thereby reducing its current inventories. The inventory turn over resulting
from the Sales Contract also enables the Company to commence a scheduled
planting cycle for its greenhouse operations. In addition, the pre-purchase
orders under the Contract enables the Company to plan its growing schedules
for late 2007 and early 2008.

    Maple Leaf's primary mission is to provide top quality, value added
nursery seedlings and services for reforestation and landscaping projects in
China through a 100% Wholly Owned Foreign Enterprise registered company. Maple
Leaf currently has over 6,000,000 various types of seedlings under cultivation
in our 110,000 square foot greenhouse facility.
