    Sycamore is one of the important commercial woods of the United States, and is of special value for use in certain containers, such as slack barrels and plug-tobacco boxes. It ranks low, however, in amount consumed, for about 25 native woods, including 13 hardwoods, are used in larger quantities. This bulletin gives information on the supply of sycamore, on the conditions attendent on its manufacture, and on how it may be used most advantageously.
