Until  now  there  has  been  no  information  describing  the current  condition  (status)  of community forest health, especially  of  sengon  (Paraserianthes  falcatria)  community  forests  in monoculture planting system at  Lampung Province. In fact, information  healthy  community forest conditions  and  the  changes  are  absolutely  required  by  the  managers  (owners  or  tenants)  of community  forests  as  decision  makers  for  making  the  right  decisions  to  support  sustainable community forest management. The objective of this research was to determine the health status of sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria) community  forest in monoculture at Lampung  Province. The total FHM cluster plot Paraserianthes falcataria community forests in monoculture planting system at  Lampung  Province is  a  much eight cluster  plot.   Community  forest  health  assessment obtained from  the  final  value  of  forest  health  conditions,  which  is  the  result  of  multiplying  the  weighted value and  value  score  parameters  of indicators  on  production  (tree growth),  vitality  (tree damage and crown conditions) and site quality (soil fertility-CEC). The result showed that the health status of Paraserianthes  falcataria  community  forest in  monoculture  planting  system  at  Lampung Province (cluster-plot 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13 and 14), each consisting of categories of conditions: good (8,42), poor (3,48), fair (5,38),  poor (3,04), good (6,86), fair (6,42), poor (3,48) and fair (5,64). The current  condition  (status) health of Paraserianthes  falcataria community  forest  in monoculture planting  system  at Lampung  province consisting of good  (2 cluster plot), fair (3 cluster plot) and poor (3 cluster plot).
