CABI Encyclopedia of Forest Trees

CABI Encyclopedia of Forest Trees

The CABI Encyclopedia of Forest Trees provides an extensive overview of 300 of the world’s most important forest trees. Tropical, subtropical, temperate and boreal trees of major economic importance are included, covering tree species used in agroforestry practices around the world. Many of the species covered are considered to be ‘multipurpose’ trees with uses extending beyond timber alone; the land uses such as watershed protection or provision of windbreaks, and non-wood uses such as the production of medicines, resins, food and forage, are also listed.
