Forest Report.

Mahogany and Cedar.
The year has been far from good owing to the intermittent rains during the dry sea-
son and consequent extraction difficulties. An unusually dry period in October and Nov-
ember enabled several contractors in the north and west of the Colony to continue haul-
ing the logs left in the bush and, in some cases, to commence extraction work for 1938
contracts. Where such logs have been thrown into a driving stream it is unlikely that they
will come down until the first floods of 1938.
The export of logs during the year has totalled eight and two-thirds million board
measure feet of which four and one-quarter million feet are Colony produce and the re-
mainder Mexican wood reexported from Belize. The shortage on contracts therefore
amounts to about seven million feet net.
Most of the contracts for 1938 have now been signed, the approximate net volume
of logs required for the American buyers being eight million feet of Colony wood and
eight and a quarter million feet of Mexican wood for reexport through Belize.
The volume of lumber to be exported is not known but it is believed it will continue
on the same standard of about three and a half to four and a quarter million board feet
gross measure.
The percentage of wood to be obtained from Crown lands has greatly increased and
the following comparison is of interest.
Origin 1936 1937 1938
Total net volume of contracts for logs 14 mil. ft. 15.7 mil. ft. 16.25 mil. ft
Percentages of Totals Deliveries Contracts Deliveries Contracts
1936 1937 1937 1938
Crown lands 25.4 27.5 15.9 32.9
Private lands 24.1 21.4 33.3 16.3
Colony wood 49.5 48.9 49.2 49.2
Mexican wood 50.5 51.1 50.8 50.8
Analysis of the measurement sheets of 1937 log exports shows that the private lands
of the northern plain are now producing very small wood and continuance of the present
destructive exploitation will soon reduce their contribution to an extremely small percent-
age of the total. Another indicator of approaching non-production from these lands is the
wide spread trespassing of trees during 1937 from Crown lands adjoiring operations oni
private lands, but it is hoped that this will be prevented in 1938.
Prices have not increased for Colony wood owing, it is stated to the general increase
in freight rates and a sluggish American market. The general average appears to be $90
per thousand feet over 24 inches diameter and $70 per thousand feet for diameters be-
twen 18 and 23 inches. There is a slight reduction on these prices for southern wood and
a considerable bonus for uniformly large wood now obtainable only from the lands on
the western frontier. Mexican wood is considered to be superior to Colony wood andob-
tains better prices.
Other Forest Produce.
Chicle.
The October and November dry period adversely affected the production of chics,.

Logwood.
Reduction of the royalty rate on logwood to encourage its exploitation was without
result, the shipments for the year being below those for 1936. While the market is incap-
able of absorbing shipments on consignment, no increase in exports can be expected.
Rosewood. ,
The exports of rosewood were maintained but the market is still limited.







Cohune Nuts.
A second American company is now exporting cohune nuts whole for processing in
the U.S.A. and a steady trade is being worked up. The local cracking plant has ceased
operation and its future appears to be uncertain.
The actual exports of domestic forest produce for the year ended 31st December
1937 are given elsewhere in this Report.
NEIL S. STEVENSON,
Conservator of Forests.
3rd January 1938.

Crop Report.

The exceptionally dry weather throughout the greater part of the quarter has had a
marked effect on agriculture generally. The heavy rains that fell during the latter part of
December, however, may help to improve conditions. Although the actual rainfall for
the whole year is in many areas in excess of the average the year on the whole has been
in a sense a dry one. Heavy rain fell during the very early months of the year, mid-year
and again late in December. The greater part of the year, however, was dry.
Bananas.
Due to dry weather conditions and the combination of Panama and Sigatoka di-
sease the production during the quarter was less than estimated. While actual shipments
show little variation from those of the same period in 1936 this very fact is somewhat
disturbing. With the activity taking place in banana growing one would have expected
a substantial increase on the 1936 output. That this is not so is attributed to two main
causes, (a) disease, as noted above and (b) the tendering for sale of poor fruit. The latter
factor has been very evident of late and the result has been a very great increase in the
number of rejects. A note of warning to those interested in bananas in the Belize River
area is not out of place here. The amount of thin immature fruit being shipped from the
Belize area is alarming. It would be wise for all interested parties to look into this matter
and prevent the shipment of such fruits.
Citrus.
There is little to report. Shipments of medium size were made during the quarter.
Prices on the United Kingdom market remained fairly good. The dry weather encouraged
flowering but the exceptionally heavy rains which fell during the last few weeks of Dec-
,ember may do a certain amount of harm.
Figures of shipments are given elsewhere in this Report.

Coconuts and Copra.
The industry received a severe shock as the result of a sudden decline in demand and
prices. During the quarter the price for nuts dropped as much as $6.00 per 1,000 to the
Slow figure for this time of the year of $9.00.

Sugar Cane.
While weather conditions at the beginning of the year were ideal for good sugar cane
growth, the unusually dry weather during the second half has materially reduced the
estimated production for the 1938 crop and it is feared that not more than 10,000 tons of
cane will be produced.
Food Crops.
Contrary to expectations the corn crop has not proved to be in excess of that of the
previous years. In some parts there is a shortage and there is no great movement of corn.
The rice crop in the Toledo District was slightly in excess of last year's crop but growers
are holding in spite of the offer of a higher price for paddy. Red Kidney Beans have been
planted in larger quantities than last year. In the Corozal District the production of food
crops, in particular vegetables, has received a great deal of interest as the result of the
organization of the Corozal Producers' Association. An attempt at organized marketing
has been started and small regular shipments of vegetables are being made to Belize. The
following vegetables, amongst others, are being grown very satisfactorily: Cauliflower
Celery. Cabbage, Beets and Carrots.
