Abstract:After the longest debate in the history of the House of Commons, Canada recently adopted a sugar maple leaf as its emblem. The new Canadian flag is shown on the cover of this issue. History of the sugar maple as a Canadian emblem, distribution, and uses of the species in North America, and importance of Canadian forests to North American are described briefly. Canada-United States trade and the American stake in Canadian forests are outlined to provide background for the joint SAF-CIF meeting which will be held in Ottawa, Ontario, in 1967.
