PT ALAM BUKIT TIGAPULUH.
PT Alam Bukit Tigapuluh has obtained an Ecosystem Forest Product Utilization License (IUPHHK-RE) based on the Decree of the Capital Investment Coordinating Board Number: 7/1 / IUPHHK-HA / PMDN / 2015 dated July 24, 2015 located in Tebo District of Jambi Province.
Forest area of PT ABT concession area of 38,655 hectares PT ABT in Tebo District is a lowland tropical rain forest species with very high biodiversity so it is important to maintain its sustainability. Some Sumatran endemic animals are of concern to the wider community living in PT ABT concessions such as tigers (Phantera tigris sumatrae), elephants (Elephas maximus sumatranus), and tapir (Tapirus indicus). PT ABT also supports its concession area as the second habitat or reintroduction area of Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii), which has been running for more than 16 years. The importance of this area is the consideration to maintain its representation and sustainability.
In the context of landscape management, the work area of PT ABT is an important part of the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem and is a buffer zone of Bukit Tigapuluh National Park. The condition of the company’s work area is not only influenced by the dynamics of local community activities, but also the history of previous forest management. The work area of PT ABT is a former IUPHHK-HA / HPH from PT DALEK HUTANI ESA, which ended in 2003. This location is the only natural forest ecosystem of the remaining buffer production in northern Bukit Tigapuluh. areas that do not escape illegal logging and encroachment activities, especially during the open access period (between end of IUPHHK-HA / HPH until IUPHHK-RE permit).
The working area of PT ABT is also a residence of indigenous Jambi traditional people, among others: Suku Anak Dalam, Talang Mamak, and Ancient Malay. Some communities of the three tribes live in the work area of PT ABT and some live around the company’s work area but have a high dependence on the forest in the company’s work area. Their existence is expected to be consistent with the goal of ecosystem restoration, despite the fact that the current trend is reversed. The complexity of social problems at PT ABT’s workplace location level over the last decade is higher due to the inclusion of outsiders from outside the province to gain business opportunities, clearing of plantation land in forest areas. This condition has become one of the main challenges for PT ABT in managing forests for ecosystem restoration. On the other hand, PT ABT is also required to conduct business activities based on non-timber forest products, environmental services and / or utilization of the area. In this framework PT ABT has conducted exploration, preparation and other preliminary efforts so as to have a business process design that is ready to be implemented.
