During the Dutch occupation of Indonesia commercial plantations were established across the island of Java. From 1956 the Indonesian Government took control of the plantations.
In 1972, Perum Perhutani (PHT) was established to manage the forest resource. In total, PHT manages 2,426,266.00 hectares of forest which is planted mainly with teak (Tectona grandis) and various other plantation species such as Pine and Melaleuca sp. The forest area is spread over 57 KPHs (Kesatuan Pemangkuan Hutan) or Forest Districts.
TFT has been in partnership with Perhutani since 2003 to build the capacity of its staff to implement sustainable forest management and ultimately achieve FSC Certification for its plantations. TFT currently supports 6 forest districts.
Located in Central Java, Kendal Forest District has an area of little over 20,000 hectares. Teak (Tectona grandis) is the dominate species grown. The district also manages over 2,000 hectares of protection forest. TFT has been supporting Kendal Forest District since January 2003 to implement forest practices that meet FSC Forest Management Standards.
