For many years wood preservation tests have been running at Pienaars River in the Transvaal Bushveld some forty miles north of Pretoria. These were started by C. B. Simpson to test the resistance of various treated and untreated indigenous woods to the ravages of termites. Expansion in the scope of the work has since taken place under the aegis of the Forest Products Institute of the Department of Forestry.
