Abstract

A number of systems have been developed and formulated for the management of tropical forests of Southeast Asian countries over the years. However, almost all countries have adopted some form of selective felling system to sustainably manage their forests. In the Philippines, selective logging systems have been adopted. Similarly in Indonesia, a selective cutting system was approved for implementation in 1972 which was revised and modified in 1989. The modified system is called selective felling and replanting system. In Malaysia the selective management system was introduced in 1978 replacing the successful Malayan Uniform System which was practised in lowland dipterocarp forests. The selective systems are generally designed for shorter cutting cycles ranging from 25 to 35 years. Under this system a pre-felling inventory is conducted to determine the cutting limit of trees to be felled. Immediately after harvesting a post-felling inventory is undertaken to determine the quality and composition of the residual stand followed by silvicultural treatment to enhance the residual stand as the future crop for the subsequent cycle.
