   a. Management Plan


The 184.206 ha, forest concession area of PT. Erna Djuliawati (PT. ED) is located in Seruyan District Central Kalimantan. Geographically position PT. ED at 00o52'30" - 01o22'30" Southern Latitude and 111o30'00" - 112o07'30" Longitude East. PT. Erna Djuliawati strives to implement sustainable forest management in its concession by considering all the functions of production, ecology/environment and social aspects of forest management.


These three fundamental aspects of forest management can be harmonized and balanced only if the implementation of sustainable forest management is coordinated to take into account the interests of all major stakeholders such as government, private sector and local communities.


Towards this end, PT. Erna Djuliawati has prepared a Sustainable Forest Management Plan, which takes into account the recomendations contained in the FSC/Rainforest Alliance guidelines and Ministry of Forestry Decree of Sustainable Forest Management.


PT. ED has prepared long term management plans for two periods, 35 year cycles respectively, starting from 1999 until 2068. This long term planning has now been replaced by a 10 year planning framework according to the latest Ministry of Forestry's regulation. The current 10 year plan is based on an analysis of field sampling reffered to as a "Comprehensive Periodical Forest Inventory" (Inventarisasi Hutan Menyeluruh Berkala). The first periode of 10 year plan of IHMB 2011 - 2020 has been approved by Minister of Forestry.


Average production of PT. ED varies from 250,000 - 350,000 m3 per year. All the production is hauled and rafted to Sanggau in West Kalimantan Province to meet the raw material requirements of PT. ED's plywood industry.


The company prepares Annual Work Plans covering detailed elements of production, environmental and social aspects. These plans are then approved by President Director of PT. ED (self approval).


Briefs view the following management plan are as follows :


a.1 Production


     Sequential production operation consists of :

  • Site work area management
  • stock inventory
  • forest road construction
  • harvest and
  • reforestation 


a.2 Environment


The environmental management of the concession area covers to physical     & chemical impact and biotical impact which done annually conducted to :

  • Buffer zone
  • biodiversity of the preservation area
  • rivers greenbelt
  • terrain above 40 % slope
  • animal pouch protection area
  • water spring protection area
  • erosion control
  • high conservation value forest and
  • archeological sites 


a.3 Social


Social management target aims to establish mutual interaction between the forest community and the company to create a continuing sustainable forest management set as Forest Villager Community Development (Pembinaan Masyarakat Desa Hutan - PMDH). Social improvement target is 1.335 household, equal to 4.971 persons who live in 14 villages in Central Kalimantan. All are inside the concession and one village in West Kalimantan outside the concession. 


The general targets of the PMDH are :

  • To improve local community income, work opportunity and economic growth based on sustainable forest management concept
  • To provide sufficient public facilities
  • To establish positive social awareness in conserving forest resource 


   b. Reduced Impact Logging


Harvesting activities in PT. Erna Djuliawati conducted Reduced Impact Logging (RIL) technique.  RIL is being implemented under training program provided by Tropical Forest Foundation starting from mapping technique, timber cruising, tree mapping, skidding road mapping, logging operation and ditching on post log harvest.


To reduce logging waste, a quality control grading system is applied to standing trees and trees which have already been felled. Appropriate bucking techniques are always applied in the  field so that logging waste is minimized over the entire cutting area. The company's utilization standards also seek to minimize negative impact to industry and minimize the logging operation cost.


To maintain the high quality of the logs, the company has implemented a "fresh-cut program". This ensures that the logs are transported to the factory with minimum delay of not more than one month. Under this program, the company has been able to achieve a high conversion recovery and maintain a high quality standard for its products.

In order to follow the transparency program of Indonesian log administration, PT. ED has been adopted an Information System Log Administration Online (SIPUHH-Online) refers to Ministry of Forestry's Regulation.


To show our commitment to sustainable forest management, PT. Erna Djuliawati has made a special effort to focused its activities under three key aspects :

  • High quality of production functions
  • Improving the social life for all communi- ties living in & arround the concession area
  • Maintaining environmental quality.

c. Silviculture Implementation System


According to the current 10 year plan of 2011 - 2020, PT. Erna Djuliawati implements a single  silvicultural system of Selective Cutting Line Replanting with Intensifying Silvicultural Techniqe  (TPTJ dengan Teknik Silin) for all terrain categories.


According to long period planning (Rencana Kerja Usaha Pemanfaatan Hasil Hutan Kayu) arranges based on IHMB valid from 2011 to 2020, PT. ED implements  Selected Cutting and Line Planting with Intensified Technique Silviculture (TPTJ dengan Teknik Silin) in the whole areas which. This system requires systematic line planting using selected Dipterocarp seedlings at an intensity of 20 x 5 m = 100 seedlings/Ha.
