The company strictly control the planting and harvesting cycle of the timber in 2 million hectares production forest of Indonesia. The size and the age of the harvested wood limited, the age has to be more than ten years old before it harvested. This is to preserve natural resources while providing high-quality wood to industries.
Naturally drying before felled
The wood harvesting steps in plantation involve a seasoning process, it is cut cylindrically for 2 - 5 cm depth and left it dry for sometimes.
The seasoning took about 6 month to a year according to the timber size, the wood is drying while it stand while the PERHUTANI prepare replacement tree. This is to ensure no tree is cut before replacement planted.
Although the wood has been drying naturally, once it become sawn timber it will need a kiln dry process.
