KPKKT is fully aware of the ecological potential of our tropical rain forest and has set aside potentially sensitive habitat for preservation. We have also incorporated protective zoning areas with steep slopes and water bodies so as to minimize the impact of harvesting on the environment and maintain adequate level of biodiversity throughout.
Typical to other tropical rain forests, CFC & DTC comprises mainly of mixed dipterocarps and non-dipterocarps with diversified biological resources. Apart from trees, underneath plants such as the magnificent fan palm, the climbing bamboo, the slender stemmed walking stick palm, pitcher plants and various medical plants that are used in the traditional medical as health support and to treat wounds and diseases, for example the ginger plant family (Zingiber spectabile), Mengkudu (Morinda citrifolia) and Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) grow wildly in the forest.
Through our prudent management of the forest area and through a judicious application of the SMS and RIL we are confident that these biodiversity could be preserved and enhanced over the long term.
