Sengon is one of the favourite trees grown by local people especially in Java due to its fast growing, multipurpose uses and strong demands. Also, a professor from Faculty of Veterinary Medicine IPB, Agik Suprayogi, has grown this timber since three year ago in a small piece of bareland and the trees grows very well already reaching dimensions ready for harvesting. Seedlings for establishing this small plantation were supplied from the nursery of Department of Silviculture IPB. In a broader perspective, planting trees in lots of small pieces of abandoned and bare lands outside forest lands, i.e. Trees outside Forest (TOF) will benefits the local economy as well as environment. Let’s go planting trees for improving livelihood as well as environment. A popular book on Sengon (in Bahasa Indonesia) is available in the lokal bookstore.
