Abstract

Excerpt from the report Preface: The Liberian Forest Survey was one of the projects of the United States Economic Mission to Liberia. This Mission, initiated by the Foreign Economic Administration in 1944 and continued after 1946 by the Department of State, had the following broad objectives: To make reconnaissance surveys of Liberia's resources. To make recommendations for the development of those resources, and To give technical aid and advice in the operation of projects to increase Liberia's production of agricultural and other commodities for internal use and to develop surpluses of such raw materials as rubber, cacao, timber, palm oil and fibers, iron ore, industrial diamonds, and cola nuts. The information here presented on Liberia's forests should serve as a guide for planning the development and utilization of this valuable resource.
