The main objective of this study is to classify the landforms of Batu Gangan Forest Reserve by conducting a morphometric analysis of the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) with 10m resolution. The classification process is based on calculating the Topographic Position Index (TPI). Using TPI, the landscape was classified into slope position and landform categories. The delivered TPI landform classes are spatially correlated with the elevation, slope, LS factor, and topographic wetness of the mountain. Site observation was carried out to identify water sources, viewpoints, and their significance as suitable campsites and potential trail. An alternative trail was proposed to reduce the visitor impacts towards the main trails. The result suggested that the plains landform only covered 3.26% or 2.03km2 of the study area, where two potential campsites were identified. The method presented and research findings derived from the study are beneficial to support sustainable recreation resource planning, especially in a complex mountainous area. The study's findings and data will lead to proper forest use for recreational reasons consistent with conservation efforts.</em></p> 2023-04-18T07:55:22+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Morphological Characteristics and Potential of Sago (Metroxylon spp.) in Lingga Regency, Riau Islands, Indonesia 2023-04-19T13:16:57+07:00 Primadhika Al Manar Ervizal Amir Muhammad Zuhud Nuri Andarwulan Mochamad Hasjim Bintoro <p><em>Sago</em> (<em>Metroxylon</em>)<em> is one of the local food species with development potential.

The morphological characteristics and sago production vary greatly between research sites. Sago stands have a production potential ranging from 3.37 to 14.55 tons ha<sup>-1</sup>. Because they have a starch content of more than 200 kg stem<sup>-1</sup>, the majority of sago accessions in Lingga are superior accessions with the potential to be further developed. Superior sago comes from the villages of Musai, Pekaka, Keton, and Teluk. </em></p> 2023-04-18T08:38:17+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Ecological Analysis of Community and Private Partnership in Tree Planting Program to Rehabilitate Degraded Lands: A Case Study in East Java, Indonesia 2023-04-19T13:16:56+07:00 Lia Hapsari Titut Yulistyarini Trimanto Setyawan Agung Danarto Shofiyatul Mas'udah Janis Damaiyani Rachmawan Adi Laksono Ardiawan Jati Sugeng Budiharta <p><em>Community and private partnership </em>(<em>CPP</em>)<em> in </em><em>tree planting </em><em>initiative is potential to accelerate rehabilitation</em> <em>of degraded lands</em><em>. </em><em>Yet, empirical studies to analyse such programs are limited.

Traders and immigrants from various regions who came in, stopped by, </em><em>performe</em><em>d business, and stayed have caused the riverbanks to develop into economic and trade centers. One of the issues in the Karang Mumus sub-watershed is the conversion of forest area to agricultural land. With the </em><em>im</em><em>proper use of agrotechnology and soil conservation, agricultural operations result in erosion and reduced land yield. </em><em>Th</em><em>is</em><em> study aims</em><em> to evaluate the Karang Mumus sub-potential watersheds to support land capability by using the overlay method </em>(<em>geoprocessing</em>)<em> of a geographic information system </em>(<em>GIS</em>)<em> based on criteria for classifying land capabilities and a data analysis approach. The findings revealed that the Karang Mumus sub-land watersheds primarily are categorized as land capacity class III, with a moderate erosion limiting factor that covers 15,864 ha </em>(<em>50.45%</em>)<em>. The remaining areas are categorized into land capability classes IV and VI, with class IV having a severe slope limiting factor and class VI having a severe slope limiting factor with a fairly strong soil sensitivity to erosion, covering 8,751.14 ha (27.83%) and 6,829.85 ha (21.72%), respectively. Class III land is recommended for agricultural cultivation, application of appropriate agro-technology, and soil and water conservation.

The framework of the approach used in this research was phenomenology, which was then enriched with the data collection techniques of study documentation, observation, and close-ended questionnaire. The analytical method utilized was the One Score One Indicator Scoring System, an analysis model that was used through developing elaboration of questionnaires in collecting data and evaluating various variables that researchers had determined. Then, two critical issues were examined in the polarization analysis to understand the differentiation between actors, namely polarization of direction and rating scale, and then tested statistically using Kruskal Wallis test to know the polarization significance. Overall, based on the assessment of 189 CHSE indicators, the data shows that the implementation of CHSE in Situ Gunung GGPNP results in a reasonable conclusion or score of 6. When viewed based on stakeholder polarization where the data shows there is no polarization of direction between stakeholders on CHSE management at Situ Gunung. Things are different when viewed in terms of average values, where the study results show the polarization of each actor's attitude scale on the CHSE implementation assessment. The aggressive strategy is carried out by optimizing three crucial aspects: 1) Strengthening CHSE Management Policies and Implementation; 2) Optimizing Ecotourism Carrying Capacity.</em></p> 2023-04-18T08:27:24+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Autopoetic Dynamics of the Illegal Logging System in Papua Forest 2023-04-19T13:16:56+07:00 Sustyo Iriyono Susanti Withaningsih Budhi Gunawan Johan Iskandar <p><em>Illegal logging in Papua's forest areas has been a cause of unresolved degradation or deforestation and has developed into a complex problem. This study intends to elaborate on the complex dynamics of illegal logging in Papua, Indonesia, using Niklas Luhmann's Social System theory.&nbsp; The findings of this study are expected to provide a better understanding of the complexities of illegal logging and to encourage stakeholders to respond with more appropriate decisions and policies in accordance with their respective roles and authorities. The results of the research </em><em>show</em> <em>that illegal logging in Papua is a social system that is formed from a simplification of the meaning of forests by actors who are purely economic-oriented. In facing the pressure from efforts to eradicate this system, the system has been reproducing in an autopoietic manner through differentiation to penetrate all other social systems pointed toward handling illegal logging and sustainable forest management, especially the law enforcement system and the customary forest community system. The ability of autopoietic to reproduce makes this system very flexible and cannot be handled by a rigid and bureaucratic system for dealing with illegal logging. It is suggested that the system for dealing with illegal logging must also be transformed into one of an autopoietic nature through collaborative management.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2023-04-18T08:39:38+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Ethnobiology Study: Game in Dayak Lun Dayeh Community at Watershed of Mentarang in Malinau 2023-04-19T13:16:57+07:00 Medi Hendra Dijan Sunar Rukmi Surianto Effendi Freminci Auliana <p><em>Dayak Lun</em> <em>Dayeh is one of local community who lives</em> <em>in East Kalimantan, where they’ve mostly practiced</em> <em>hunting traditionally, has particular way</em><em>s</em><em> to find hunting spot and use hunting techniques</em> <em>sustainably.

Also, these IPs had a better knowledge about edible forest plants than these MEs, whilst various more MEs consumed forest fauna for medicinal demand. These MEs harvested and consumed those NTFPs more intensively, but these IPs did the resources for more self-consumption related to the indigenous traditions.

Therefore this study observed local fruit trees species collected in the Purwodadi Botanical Gardens (PBG); they were Flacourtia rukam (Zoll &amp; Moritzi), Limonia acidissima L., and Manilkara kauki (L) Dubard. We used fruit phenology data from 2014 to 2018 as secondary data to describe the changes. We also observed the weekly phenology of flowering and fruiting for three years from 2019 to 2022. At the same time, mesoclimates components included precipitation, maximum and minimum temperature were daily recorded by the PBG weather station measurement. Data pairs were then analyzed by using a structural modeling of WarpPLS to determine the relationship among mesoclimates and phenology variables. Research showed that phenology of flowering and fruiting of F. rukam, L. acidisissima, and M. kauki was significantly shifted from 2014 to 2022, along with changes in rainfall patterns, maximum and minimum temperatures in the PBG. Based on the Friedman test, it was shown that the maximum and minimum temperatures significantly changed (p&lt;0.05). Five months of mesoclimates were significant predictors and affected before the measurement of phenological flowering and fruiting of three species. High precipitation significantly reduced maximum temperature, and increased minimum temperature. The high precipitation reduced the probability of flowering and fruiting initiation, except for those of L. acidissima. Increasing maximum temperature reduced flower and fruit set of F. rukam and L. acidisissima, while it reduced flowering of L. acidissima. Furthermore, minimum temperature induced flowering, except in L. acidissima.</em></p> <p><em>&nbsp;</em></p> 2023-04-18T08:27:45+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika Tree Architecture Model and Tree Health Assessment Using Sonic 3D Tomograph Relationship in Bali Botanic Garden 2023-04-19T13:16:58+07:00 Siti Fatimah Hanum Ayyu Rahayu Rajif Iryadi I Dewa Putu Darma <p><em>The incident of fallen trees or broken branch</em><em>es</em> <em>is</em><em> dangerous for tourists visit</em><em>ing</em><em> Bali Botanic</em><em>al</em><em> Garden.
