The problem of maintaining stable and sufficiently large markets for wood has become of increasing significance in recent years. One phase of the problem is the control of fungus deteriorating agents, which attack lumber, logs, and other wood products in storage and in use. Such agents are an important factor in increasing manufacturing costs, reducing quality and utility value, and developing unwarranted prejudices against wood products. Resulting losses and inconvenience to both the consumer and manufacturer are often far greater than is indicated by the value of the material affected. In the following discussion an analysis is made of some of the damage and its effect on present and future markets for wood. Present accomplishments in developing feasible control methods and the need for further progress is mentioned for some of the most important problems.
