Silviculture & Protection

Division Function

Responsible for implementing and coordinating activities such as census forest silviculture forest after felling, forest restoration treatments including enrichment planting, cutting roots and climbers and plants in open areas, managing nurseries, establishment of forest plantations, forest fire prevention of the disease or insect pests, biodiversity conservation programs and handling parcels Virgin Jungle Reserve. Silvicultural practices on forest land and natural mangrove forests to meet the needs of forest management systems practiced Choosing Management System [Selective Management System (SMS)]. This practice involves the implementation of activities to restore forests after harvesting, namely:

  •      After Felling Forest Inventory (Post-F) 
  •      Root cutting / climbers (CL) 
  •      Enrichment Planting 
  •      Mangrove planting and Compatible Species in Coastal State Beach 

After Felling Forest Inventory (Post-F)

Forest Inventory After Felling implemented in order to obtain accurate information and updates on the residual stand and the information about the existence of climbers, increased and other plants to determine the types of silvicultural treatments to be carried out over an area. Inventories are carried out in a period of two (2) to five (5) years after a compartment or subkompartmen harvested.


(i) To collect accurate and meaningful information about the stock position, content, nature and distribution of all large trees, poles, saplings and seedlings in order to know the true picture of the contents of the forest after harvesting and silvicultural treatments can be determined according to the areas for effective forest planning;

(ii) collect information in relation to forest physiographic characteristics such as elevation, slope, soil type and conditions, ecology and river systems of the area to be planned in an optimal silvicultural practices and forest management in order to avoid adverse effects on the environment; and

(iii) Collecting information about the availability of rattan, bamboo, climbers, increased and other plants can be designed so that after harvest treatment required for the forest.

Root cutting / climbers (CL)

Root cutting / climbers (CL) is a forest restoration treatments to provide assistance to the residual stand after harvesting progress. The treatment is carried out not later than three (3) years after the Post-F. It involved cutting the roots / climbers who disrupt the growth of the residual trees.


To liberate the species tree root disturbance RS / climbers to improve the quality of the stand and help growth.

Enrichment Planting

Enrichment plant is a forest restoration treatments on forested areas and poor areas. Enrichment planting activities will help increase the productivity of a forest area in order to achieve the desired level, especially in terms of species composition and quality-driven.


(i) to increase the stock of poor forest stand species composition and quality-driven for the next harvesting

(ii) to restore green spaces to be re-forested with species-driven and quality of forest resources to be able to give results

Mangrove planting and Compatible Species in Coastal Country

In general, the coastal area of the country, consists of a variety of terrain and geo-morphological conditions which vary from one place to another place, such as sloping and sandy beaches, bogs, such as mangrove forests, deltas, estuaries and rivers in affected by salt water. This area is quite sensitive when tergangu either naturally or as a result of developments such as the tidal wave or flood.

The coastal area is a unique ecosystem that is located along the coastal muddy and sandy habitats important to a variety of flora and fauna, including marine life. This area is usually covered by mangroves and coastal forests that play an important role as a barrier to break, stop and reduce the effects of wind and waves of the sea.


(i) To conserve the coastal areas so that they become more stable as the natural layer of protection to prevent and reduce the level of destruction of infrastructure facilities, property, settlement and loss of land due to tidal waves and strong wind

(ii) To preserve natural habitats for conservation of biological diversity and

(iii) To create a natural buffer zone of strong and stable to reduce the need and cost of execution of works of shore erosion control future
