An authoritative handbook on Queensland woods and forestry. Edward Harold Swain (1883-1970) was a Sydney born and educated forester and studied eucalypts under J. H. Maiden at the National Herbarium of New South Wales. In 1924 he became Chairman of the Provision Forestry Board of Queensland, during which time he established a forest products division to investigate the properties and uses of local woods, resulting in this publication.
