Guide to Lesser Known Tropical Timber Species

Many forest concessions in the tropics can contain over 100 different tree species, but their characteristics are simply not known and there is lack of knowledge about their uses and purposes.

The Guide to Lesser Known Tropical Timber Species, produced by WWF's Global Forest & Trade Network, helps fill this gap by providing more information on these valuable but often overlooked lesser known timber species. The guide provides details on more than 50 possible alternative species and their end uses, as well as information on GFTN participants supplying those species.
