  The Malaysian Government through the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodity (KPPK) and Malaysian Timber Industrial Board (MTIB) with the support of various forestry agencies have recognized that forest plantation as a strategy to overcome the scarcity of timber supply in the near future. The existing natural forests is currently reducing its capability to continue meeting the increasing demand of log/timber for domestic wood processing industries. In an effort to reduce the reliance on natural forests as the main source of round logs, the government has realized the needs of continuous wood supply and encouraging the development of large–scale commercial forest plantations. Unlike the previous reforestation programmes, the Compensatory Forest Plantation Programme (CFPP) in 1980s, were fully implemented by the state government using funds available from soft loans, however the current programme involved the full participation of the private sectors currently involved with forestry operations and developments.
