Dr. Ir. Irdika Mansur, M.For. Sc, 2010


The book presenting silvicultural techniques from understanding the characteristics and products of forest trees, nursery techniques (from planning to maintenance of seedlings), utilisation of micorrhizal fungi and rhizobium to enhance the survival and growth of seedlings on mine sites, planting technique (conventional, hydroseeding, as well as some innovative techniques), maintenance of the plantation in the field, and evaluation technique to assess the success of mine reclamation programme using standards and guidlines set by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia. Silvicultural techniques developed through field research and observation presented in this book have now been implemented in the field by many mining companies in Indonesia. The possible environmental problems from miss-management of mine sites, and best mine reclamation practices in Indonesia are presented in the introductory section of the b.

This book is expected to become simple technical guidelines and source of inspiration for mining companies, government institutions responsible directly or indirectly on mining supervision, and educational and research institutions to develop further innovation in mine reclamation, especially to return biodiversity and productivity of the forest area after being mined, to support sustainable development of the country.
