Documentaire sur les diverses opérations auxquelles on soumet le bois selon sa destination. On y explique la nécessité d'un inventaire de la quantité, de la qualité et de la maturité des espèces de bois pour une coupe plus judicieuse. On y explore aussi toute la mise en relief de la richesse industrielle de nos forêts.
