This illustrated report discusses the development of forest management in Malaysia and provides a comprehensive introduction to the characteristics of Malaysian forests and their importance to the economy.




Malaysia is aware of the need to manage sustainably its forests, not only for socio-economic benefits but also for climatic, ecological and environmental stability. It strongly believes in the principles of sustainable management and is openly committed to maintain its Permanent Forest Estate and the network of conservation areas. Compared to European forestry, forest management in Malaysia is relatively new, but British involvement in the early twentieth century administration of the Straits Settlement, the Malay States and North Borneo had brought Malaysian forestry to the fore in South-east Asia and the tropical world.
