The world's demand for forest products is increasing because of increases in population and in standards of living. Consequently, larger and larger proportions of the forested areas must be devoted to intensively managed, fast-growing species to meet the need for wood for a widening range of purposes. Many eucalypt species suit this purpose.The regeneration of old forests following clear felling is well understood, but the problems of harvesting and utilizing the resulting young, dense stands in a high-labour-cost country are being examined. This book summarizes the information now available on growing eucalypt wood under intensive management in Australia, and the characteristics and uses of the resulting product. Thirty-three highly qualified contributors.

In this issue of The Australian Author, Simpson presents an 11,000 word account.(19 spirited pages) of the tortuous campaign which began in 1956 and was successfully concluded in 1974. Based on 50 cents for authors and their heirs, and 12½ cents for publishers, indexed to Cost-of-Living (payments have doubled by new millenium) for books held in libraries, determined by survey.
