The first part of the book covers 9 wood species, 4 fruit species and 4 recent exotics, giving information for each species on importance, taxonomy and botanical features, distribution and ecology, tree characteristics, utilization, propagation, biomass studies, growth performance and tree improvement. The second (larger) part gives technical information on pests and diseases, wood properties and energy values, medicinal uses, biomass and volume tables, common and scientific names, and tree proverbs. Much of the information in the book was the result of research and extension activities in agroforestry supported in Haiti by USAID since 1981.
