Reforestation

Forest plantation is the Group’s strategic long-term asset that will sustain and maximise timber supply for the Group’s downstream production.

The Group’s forest planted area has been expanding steadily. We are currently developing three Licensed Forest Plantations covering a total land area of 235,859 ha of reforestation area in Kapit Region, Sarawak of which 32,018 ha have been planted.

Over the past 12 months, fast-growing tree species such as Eucalyptus Deglupta (Kamarere), Eucalyptus Pellita and Kelampayan were planted across the plantation areas and the average survival rate of the planted seedlings was above 90 %.

Going forward, the reforestation division needs to address key challenges in relation to assuring silvicultural improvement, better wood properties, pest and disease control and recruitment of field workers. With governments and the community placing a greater emphasis on the role trees play in their ability to lessen climate change and to provide adequate wood supplies for the timber industry, the Group's forest plantation is well positioned to contribute financially and environmentally to these outcomes as they mature.
