The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

The forest resource of South Vietnam and its management are described, with particular emphasis on the impact of the war. The chemical defoliation program of the military is estimated to have thus far destroyed over 6.5 billion board feet [47 million cubic meters] of merchantable timber as well as indeterminate amounts of fuelwood, charcoal wood, and other forest products. Losses resulting from the bombing and the bulldozing programs are also discussed. The total financial loss thus far to the forest resource from chemical defoliation is estimated to approximate half a billion dollars.
