This pine of SE. Asia and Luzon gives a light multi-purpose wood and a resin; during this century, plantations have been set up in many tropical, seasonally dry, montane regions. The present book discusses occurrence, silviculture, properties, and breeding; foresters, for whom it is clearly intended, now have a handsome manual, with many references.
