To date, FMU has planted approximately 4,700 ha of rubber trees. We hope to eventually build up to approximately 10,000 ha. We will continue to plant between 1,000 – 1,500 ha p.a. of superior clones of rubber trees on the degraded forests. It will provide a good combination and spread of our plantation activities and allow us to capture the exciting potential of the rubber sector.
Other Industrial Trees
Another 11,000 ha of FMU 4 has been set aside for a 13-year forest plantation development program involving the planting of 5.5 million trees. To date, we have planted approximately 5,000 ha of fast growing industrial trees such as Acacia, Albizia, Teak, Binuang and Laran.
This effort represents our green commitment to:-
Furthermore, TSH has plans to certify the Industrial Tree Plantation activities in the near future, in tandem with the local governing body requirements.
