Forest Management Plan for Cherul Forest Concession (2009-2038)

The Forest Management Plan (FMP) document for Cherul Forest Concession (CFC) had been prepared to serve as a general guide and to provide direction toward the sustainable management, production, growth and development, protection and conservation of the invaluable tropical rain forest (TRF) resources within CFC in the State of Terengganu, Malaysia, over a time continuum. This FMP is, in effect, a continuance of the previous FMP for the same concession area which had expired at the end of 2000. Managed under the Malaysian Selective Management System (SMS) since the late 1970s, the whole of CFC which covers a total area of approx. 20,243ha is treated as a single and unique Forest Management Unit (FMU). The concession area is located in the southern corner of the State of Terengganu Darul Iman, bordering the State of Pahang Darul Makmur to the south. It comprises managed mixed tropical rain forest (TRF) land divided into a total of 59 compartments ranging from 199.51ha to 486.03ha in extent.

The legal right to the management of the concession area was bestowed by the Terengganu State Government upon the Terengganu State Economic Development Corporation (TSEDC) by way of a Forest Concession Agreement between the two parties, signed on 24 th September 1975. Following this signing, TSEDC appointed Pesama Timber Corporation Sdn Bhd (Pesama) to manage the concession area during the first cycle from 1976 till 2000. For the second cycle which was to cover a slightly longer period of 30 years, Golden Pharos Berhad (GPB) which is the parent company of Pesama had decided, during a management restructuring exercise in 1999, to hand over the management of CFC to the Kumpulan Pengurusan Kayu Kayan Terengganu Sdn Bhd (KPKKT) as from 2001. In this connection, the Concession Agreement was subsequently extended for another 25 years commencing from the year 2001 till 2025.

Now that this FMP was to begin only from 2009 onward, there was a clear lapse of 8 years between 2001 and 2009, during which period practically no active management of the area and its resource had taken place. This lapse in management was brought about by, not only the absence of a proper, written FMP to follow, but also the political scenario during those years which had contributed to some degree of uncertainty and hence a wait-and-see attitude among the parties involved. Under the circumstance, and for the purpose of maintaining professional and technical continuity, the period covered by this FMP is now extended to 2038, instead of 2025, i.e. in keeping with the 30-year period as prescribed by the Selective Management System (SMS) and instruction of Terengganu State Forestry Department (TSFD).

The preparation of this FMP was based on research on the available data and extensive use of the the consultant’s experience as well as results and findings from the following reports and Plans:

  • “The Inventory and Planning for Preparation of Medium-Term Forest Management Plan of Cherul Forest Concession” conducted and prepared by Mas Adi Enterprise in 2001.
  • The Forest Management Plan for Dungun Timber Complex (DTC) in Dungun Terengganu, which is also under the second clycle of Selective Management System for period 2008-2032 and was prepared by Bahtera NM Holding Sdn Bhd.
  • Pre-Felling Inventory reports of parts of CFC area conducted by KPKKT.

The format used in preparing this FMP is mostly based on that prescribed in the Manual Perhutanan 2003, Jilid III, Lampiran 17.3.
