About this book

The South-East Asian timbers of minor commercial importance are in shorter supply and/or have less outstanding properties than the major commercial timbers. Many are currently used as core veneer and as the raw material for wood-based panels. The market for such products is expanding, so the use of these timbers is expected to increase. For example, this has already happened with rubberwood and Acacia mangium. Increasing utilization of minor commercial timbers should be compatible with the concept of sustainable use of tropical forest. The up-to-date information on all aspects of these timbers has been compiled in this volume, which complements PROSEA, Volume 5/1: Timber Trees - Major Commercial Timbers, published in 1993. Over 800 species from 62 genera are covered in detail, and the prospects for certain species as plantation trees or for enrichment planting in natural forest are also indicated. The timbers dealt with include amberoi, dao, durian, ebony, jelutong, kedondong, kelat, medang, mempening, penaga, podocarp, rengas, rubberwood, simpoh, surian, tembesu and wattle. A glossary is included to explain the terms used.
