Silviculture & Protection
Function of Unit
Responsible for implementing and coordinating the activities of the forest silviculture survey after felling forests, forest restoration treatments including enrichment planting, cut roots and climbers and plants in open spaces, nursery management, the establishment of forest plantations, forest fire prevention against diseases or pests, biodiversity conservation programs and handling parcels Virgin Jungle Reserve. Silvicultural practices of indigenous forest land and mangrove forests to meet forest management system requirements adopted the Selective Management System [Selective Management System (SMS)]. This practice involves the implementation of activities to restore forests after harvesting the:
- Forest Inventory After Cutting (Post-F)
- Root cutting / climbers (CL)
- Enrichment Planting
- Mangrove plants and Species Suitability in the Coastal Country
Forest Inventory After Cutting (Post-F)
Forest Inventory After Cutting implemented in order to obtain accurate information and updates on the residual trees as well as information about the existence of climbers, bertam and other plants to determine the type of silvicultural treatments to be carried out over an area. bertam and other plants to determine the type of silvicultural treatments should be carried out on a kawasan.Inventori is implemented within two (2) to five (5) years after a compartment or subkompartmen harvested
(i) Collect accurate and meaningful information about the stock position, content, nature and distribution of all large trees, poles, saplings and seedlings that can be known picture of the actual content of the forest after felling and can determine the appropriate silvicultural treatments on forest area for effective planning;
(ii) Gather information on the nature of the forest physiography such as altitude, slope, condition and type of soil, ecology and river systems of the area to be planned gather information regarding the optimal silvicultural practices and forest management to avoid adverse effects on the environment, and
(iii) that can be planned way after harvest treatment required for the area.
Cutting Root / climbers (CL)
Collecting information about the availability of Root Cutting / climbers (CL) is a forest restoration treatments to provide assistance to the residual stand after harvesting carried out.The treatment is carried out not later than three (3) years after the Post-F. It involved cutting the root / climber that poor growth in the residual stand.
To free the RS species of tree root disturbance / climbers to stand and help improve the quality of growth.
Enrichment planting is a forest restoration treatments on poor forest and open spaces. Enrichment planting activities will help increase productivity a forest area in order to achieve the required level, particularly in terms of species composition and quality.
(i) to increase the stock of poor forest stand species composition and high-quality for next harvesting
(ii) to restore open spaces to be re wooded rub species and quality of forest resources to be able to provide results
Mangrove plants and Compatible Species in the National Coastal
In general, the coastal area of this country consists of various forms of terrain and geo-morphological conditions which differ from one place to another place like the sloping beachand sandy, muddy land as mangrove forests, deltas, estuaries and river affected by salt water. This area is a rather sensitive when disruption whether as a result of development or nature such as tidal waves or flooding.
The coastal area is a unique ecosystem that lies along the muddy shores and sandy beaches that are home to a variety of important flora and fauna including marine life. This area is usually covered by mangroves and coastal forests that play an important role as a fortress to break, withstand and mitigate the effects of wind and blow sea waves.
(i) To conserve the coastal areas to become more stable as the natural cover layer to prevent and reduce the level of destruction of infrastructure facilities, property, settlement and land loss due to tidal waves and strong wind
(ii) To conserve natural habitats for conservation of biological diversity and
(iii) To create a natural buffer zone of a strong and stable to reduce the need and cost of implementation of erosion control works in the future beach
