FAO - The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations -grew out of a United Nations Conference held at Hot Springs, Virginia, U.S.A., in May 1943. The nations agreed to work together to secure a lasting peace through freedom from want. The Organization was formally founded at Quebec, Canada, in October 1945. It was located at Washington D.C. until 1951 when the Headquarters office was moved to Rome.

Unasylva is prepared by the Forestry and Forest Products Division, directed by Mr. Egon Glesinger, and published every quarter in English, French and Spanish. It attempts to cover a range of interest as wide as that of the Forestry Division whose work it mirrors. Signed articles express the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the Organization. All material in Unasylva may be freely reprinted, but acknowledgment is requested, together with a copy of the publication containing the reprint.

Cover photograph. Over the past 10 years a considerable area around Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, has been withdrawn from agriculture and planted -with Eucalyptus species, which coppice easily and provide a most profitable form of land-use in terms of fuel and poles. Here a camel delivers a load of eucalypt billets in a street of Addis Ababa.
