SABAH FORESTRY DEPARTMENT

SILVICULTURE TREATMENT

Silviculture Treatment is one of the main activities which were planned and being actively implemented in Sugut Conservation Area. The main goal is to release selected trees from climber and bamboo disturbances so that they may achieve optimum growth rate. In the end, the overall forest will have a very healthy condition and provides better habitat for wildlife.

As part of the department’s social responsibility and in complying with the resolution agreed during the Stakeholder and Community Committee meeting, all manpower used in this activity are locally hired.
