Abstract:

The Forest Products Laboratory is a unit of research organization of the Forest Service, United States Department of Agriculture. It is the only institution in the United States concerned wholly with the investigation of wood and wood products and their adaptation to diversified fields of use. For several years the Forest Products Laboratory was the only institution in the world conducting general research on wood and its utilization, although other governments have since followed the lead of the United States in developing laboratories along similar lines.
