Excerpt from Notes on the Forests and Forest Products and Industries of Western Australia
The purpose of this publication is to bring before the public _of Western Australia some facts and figures connected with the State's forests and their possibilities not generally known. It is unfortunate, perhaps, that a juster appreciation of the part which the forests play in the State's economic welfare has not' in the past been realised to a degree that the matter undoubtedly deserves. Several old and erroneous but prevalent ideas touching our forests must in the light of modern conditions be jettisoned and replaced by sounder notions. The fallacy that our forests are inexhaustible is dying slowly - too slowly indeed for the forests well - being - and the equally erroneous belief that a fire through a forest does good must also be replaced by a juster and truer view. Again, it is held commonly that the production of timber is the be all and end all of forest capabilities. A perusal of the following pages will, it is hoped, be sufficient to dispel this entirely inadequate conception. What possible sources of wealth our forests contain we are only now beginning to realise, but, aided by such investigations as those that may be undertaken by a forest products laboratory, the wealth and employment-giving potentialities of the forests will be brought into clearer perspective and Will stand out with that definiteness Which compels conviction. It is trusted that this publication, prepared for popular use, will lead to increased interest in forest questions on the part of the public and to increased realisation of the value to the State of its great timber heritage.
