DescriptionIn 1959 and 1960, during a series of symposia on wood quality organized jointly by the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests, the Faculty of Forestry of the University of Toronto, and the Ontario Research Foundation (ORF), it became clear that there was a serious lack of information regarding the structure and variability of the wood of the commercially important species of Ontario. Following these symposia a Wood Quality Unit was set up within the Department of Lands and Forests' Research Branch, and at about the same time the Department undertook to sponsor a wood quality research program to be carried out by the Department of Organic Chemistry of the ORF, which for many years had been doing contract research in the fields - among others - of lignin chemistry and the utilization of waste pulping liquor.
