WIDER USE OF CARIBBEAN
TIMBER DISCUSSED
POR OFSPAIN, April 17: Wider use
of Caribbean timbers was discussed at a
meeting held Thursday evening in connec-
tion with the Timber Conference now in
session at Kent House, under the aus-
pices of the Caribbean Commission. Local
importers and furniture manufacturers as
well as conference me-bers participated.
Headed by Mr. A.F.A. Lamb, Conserva-
tor of Forests in Trinidad. the discussion
included problems of the Trinidad lumber
industry in relation to construction and
furniture and also the export of loca
lumber. Representativesor the furniture
trade referred to local cyp, crabwood and
cedar which are commonly used. The
supply of these woods was stated to be
inadequate and the representatives ex-
pressed a desire to hear of other suitable
timb-rs from the region. In discussing
the lumber requirements of the area, it
was agreed that, if Caribbean lumiber
is to enter the market, which is
now supplied from the north, it must be
properly finished, easily worked, and
reasonably priced The difficulties of
working in adequately seasoned lumnter
was referred to by a representative of the
local construction industry. The difficul-
ti<-s and high cost of shipping within the
Ireion were especially mentioned,
Small shipments of Trinidad mahogany
have been sent to Australia, where they
have met with a favourable receptiir.
Mr. Lamb said that the first plantings
were made in 1906 but the second gene-
ration trees were now coming forward.
These would be of a much better quality
than the first generation trees.
Tt:e Conference will meet in plenary
session today (Friday). Tomorrow those
attending will make a field trip to Arima.
The Conference ends Wednesday, April 22
