    Description

    I feel a bit like the onion in the petunia patch today. Here I am, a professional timber beast, trying to tell a bunch of geneticists how to run their genes. However, I do believe that the practical success of the forest geneticists' work is dependent not just on their abilities, but also partly on someone else's knowledge of the real need for tree improvement. So, we will try to pass on to you people some of the understanding that we butchers have for wood markets and availability, both today and to some degree in the near future. Particularly, we will concentrate on the coniferous species.
