Present indications are that there will be a shortage of high-grade timber in this country which can not be averted even if intensive forestry methods could be immediately instituted on a large scale. Tropical America offers a wide assortment of woods to augment our supply, but information on the properties of tropical woods is necessary for their successful exploitation. Investigations already are under way on forty or more species of South American woods at the University of Michigan in coöperation with the Tropical Plant Research Division and the Wood Industries Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
