OFFICE OF THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear Reader: For the past 30 years, PCARRD has steadfastly provided the directions in developing and modernizing the agriculture, forestry, and natural resources sectors to meet the country’s ever-challenging demands for food security, economic growth, and sustainable development. In order to keep a top-caliber research system, PCARRD has streamlined its R&D efforts by pursuing important commodities on crops, livestock, agricultural resource management, forestry and environment, and socioeconomics. To this end, PCARRD has come up with this special publication, R&D Status and Directions (2000 and Beyond), composed of different volumes. Each volume provides essential information on the R&D status and directions of a specific commodity prioritized by PCARRD and the National Agriculture and Resources Research and Development Network (NARRDN). This volume specifically discusses wood production forest. PCARRD hopes that the information contained in this book will pave the way to more focused R&D work on this commodity.

Very truly yours, PATRICIO S. FAYLON Executive Director

Foreword
or the past 30 years, PCARRD has been tasked to identify R&D gaps, establish a system of R&D priorities, and provide directions for agriculture, forestry, and natural resources. In carrying out these tasks, PCARRD has been assessing the R&D performance of the different commodities. Among these commodities is wood. It is is still considered the backbone of the forestbased industries, which are 60% wood-based in nature. These industries include pulp and paper, housing and construction, furniture and handicraft, and veneer and plywood. Natural forests and tree plantations are the main sources of wood. Despite the country’s lackluster performance in terms of wood production, it managed to land ninth in industrial roundwood production among the Asian countries in 1999. Currently, the Philippines is making a name as the leading exporter of yemane wood to Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore. Yemane, together with bagras, falcata, and mangium, is widely planted in the country. This document presents the supply and demand situation of wood, taking into account the wood-based industries. It also presents the trends, strengths and weaknesses, challenges, and issues affecting the industry. Policy recommendations and science and technology (S&T) interventions needed to boost the industry are likewise discussed. PCARRD hopes that the sustainability of the wood production forest (WPF) can be vigorously pursued. May this publication serve as a guide for researchers, scientists, the academe, and the wood-based industries as they pursue their various WPF-related activities.
