Non-Timber Forest Products – A Misnomer?

This chapter was previously published in Leakey, R.R.B., 2012. Journal of Tropical Forest Science, 24, 145–146, with permission of Forest Research Institute of Malaysia

Abstract

Tree products other than timber are conventionally described as non-timber or non-wood forest products (NTFP/NWFP). For legal and trade reasons, this chapter proposes the need to distinguish those products derived from common-property resources from those, often of the same species, derived from trees cultivated on private farm land, and suggests the term agroforestry tree products (AFTP).
