Norway does not have an extensive forest area such as those possessed by Sweden and Finland, since there are large areas of steep mountains which rise above timberline. In spite of the small forest area and the long period of intensive utilization, the forests, through proper and careful management, remain today as one of Norway's principal natural resources. The normal manufacture and export trade in forest products were disrupted by the war and by conditions during the years of German occupation of the country; however, considering everything, the forests and the industry fared surprisingly well. This article is the third in a series on the forest resources and lumber industry of the northern European countries. The author wishes to express his appreciation to the many professional and industrial men in Norway whose help and cooperation have made this study possible.
