The title of this paper appears to indicate some uncertainty as to the term to be used to designate the area of knowledge concerned. Today the term wood technology is being employed to a constantly increasing extent to cover this field. Mention of this is made to clarify the meaning of the expression as it is used in what follows. In the past the meaning of the term has unfortunately been artificially restricted at many schools of forestry, perhaps because of the very limited subject matter in this department which their curricula contained. Where just a few courses were offered, the misconception easily arose that they adequately covered the field; that, indeed, they constituted wood technology in toto. This conception is somewhat analogous to saying that one leg of a table is the whole table.
