Development of Forest Management

The forests in Peninsular Malaysia have been systematically managed since the beginning of this century when the first Forest Officer was appointed in 1901. Over the years, ecologically and environmentally sound forest conservation and management practices have been developed to ensure forest renewal and sustainable yield of timber and other products. The earlier silvicultural management systems were primarily concerned with improving the existing timber crop for future exploitation.
