Abstract
The relative durability of different timbers in the ground is frequently under discussion, and timber merchants and forest officers are constantly receiving questions on the subject. These notes are not a final answer to much questions, but indicate from the results of a controlled test what species might be worth trying. Even species found to be readily perishable in the soil cannot be rejected out of hand as unworthy of trial until consideration has been given to the possibility of increasing their resistance to termites and rot by the use of preservatives.
