Current Work in Ontario on Compression Wood in Black Spruce in Relation to Pulp Yield and Quality

In 1959 and 1960, during a series of symposia on wood quality organized jointly by the Ontario Department of Lands and Forests, the Faculty of Forestry of the University of Toronto, and the Ontario Research Foundation ( ORF ), it became clear that there was a serious lack of information regarding the structure and variability of the wood of the commercially important species of Ontario. Following these symposia a Wood Quality Unit was set up within the Department of Lands and Forests' Research Branch, and at about the same time the Department undertook to sponsor a wood quality research program to be carried out by the Department of Organic Chemistry of the ORF, which for many years had been doing contract research in the fields — among others — of lignin chemistry and the utilization of waste pulping liquor.
