Abstract The study was of the island of Japen north of Western New Guinea, a wild and undeveloped part of the East Indies.
The island had vast forests; in the past some attempts to develop forestry and agriculture failed.

The author suggested exploitation of forest by-product copal, obtained by tapping Agathis, a coniferous tree. The natives were already familiar with the tapping of this tree in a very primitive way but organisation had failed. The author suggested growing artificial plantations of Agathis. Transport costs for the Agathis timber seemed too high.

Government supervision, organisation and financial support were needed.
