Kumpulan Pengurusan Kayu-kayan Terengganu Sdn Bhd

 

Background

Kumpulan Pengurusan Kayu-kayan Terengganu Sdn Bhd (KPKK) was created to manage sustainably the forest concession which comprises of 128,720 hectares of prime timber. KPKK is also created to consolidate its position as a fully integrated timber complex and to get the forest concession area certified taking into consideration of economic, social and environmental factors.

Located in the state of Terengganu, the concession covers five Forest Reserves, namely Jerangau, Jengai, Pasir Raja, Cherul and Besul. The most prominent timber species found in this concession belong to the highly productive Dipterocarp family.

Guided by the principle of sustained yield management KPKK regulates the rate of forest harvesting and forest rehabilitation activities. Currently, KPKK classify its productive forest into different classes as superior, good, moderate and poor hill forests.

At present the annual coupe of about 3,200 hectares is regulated by area control based on 25-30 years. The current research and the preparation of the latest management plan will determine the future level of Annual Allowable Cut (AAC) which is basically based on volume control.

KPKK is taking proactive steps to get its forest concession certified. In this context, KPKK at the moment subscribed fully with the Malaysian Criteria and Indicators (MC&I) and is also fully aware of the roles of the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC) and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) joint accord to regulate the certification process accordingly.

KPKK have been working closely with agencies such as Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia, Terengganu State Forestry Department, Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM) and also the Faculty of Forestry, Universiti Putra Malaysia in areas of applied research of forestry development for mutual benefit.
