The need for more complete utilization of our forest resource has stimulated interest in recent years in new products from the forest which can yield additional revenue. This investigation is concerned with tops which accumulate during logging operations as a waste and fire hazard, and their possible use for the production of essential oils. Aromatic oils recovered from the foliage of the four important coniferous lumber species in the Tennessee Valley are described, and the literature on leaf oils of other North American conifers is reviewed.
