It is becoming increasingly evident to Governments, particularly of the lesser developed countries, that they should acquire, at an early date, a thorough knowledge of their local timbers. This information is needed not only because, as a result of improved living standards, the local demand for timber is expanding, but also to provide data that will enable forest departments to assess more efficiently the value of the productive forests for which they are responsible and from which, owing to the claims on land for food and catch crops, a higher and improved yield is essential. This article is intended as a guide to the possible scope, cost and organisation of a research laboratory that will produce the necessary essential information on timber.
