Forestry in Malaysia.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Tropical forests of great botanical complexity occupy two-thirds of Malaysia's total land area of 33.2 million hectares. Dipterocarp species are the most numerous. Logs of high quality have been abundant and have supported a sizeable export trade. Now the supply of such timber is dwindling, and planting has been started to avoid a shortfall. The 14 Malaysian states own and administer nearly all of the forest, but a national policy for Peninsular Malaysia calling for a system of permanent forests is nearing acceptance. -from Author
