    Description

    Available information on wetwood is presented. Wetwood is a type of heartwood which has been internally infused with water. Wetwood is responsible for substantial losses of wood, energy and production expenditures in the forest products industry.

    The need to evaluate these losses and to find ways to eliminate or minimize them is emphasized.

    Because of increased interest in wetwood, excellent opportunities exist in initiating a comprehensive program of research. Both short and long term studies are included in the program with the short-term studies answering the immediate utilization problems created by wetwood and the long-term studies directed at examining the causes of wetwood and its control and prevention.
