Excerpt
Excerpt: The past three decades have been turbulent times for forest plantations in Malaysia. In the 1970s exotic pines (Pinus spp.) were favoured as plantation species with the objective of pulp and paper production. Later, in the continued absence of local pulp and paper mills, there was an intention to use Pinus spp. for poles and timber, but this did not come about because planting material was difficult to obtain in Malaysia. Plantations of a number of other exotic species such as Acacia mangium, Araucaria spp ... Eucalyptus spp ... Gmelina arborea, Maesopsis eminii and Falcataria moluccana (=Paraseri-anthes falcataria) were established in the 1980s with the aim of producing general utility timber. Similarly, Sabah Softwoods was established in Sabah in 1974 to plant Pinus caribaea for the pulp industry, but slow growth and seed supply problems led to replacement of the pines with A. mangium, F. moluccana, G. arborea and Eucalyptus deglupta. The Sabah Forestry Development Authority (SAFODA) was established in 1976 for the rehabilitation of degraded areas and planted mainly A. mangium.
