PLANTING

Planting activities start from the procession, making planting holes, planting seeds and fertilizing. The species planted are Eucalyptus pellita. Fertilization is carried out in accordance with the right dose to produce maximum growth.

PLANT MAINTENANCE

To enhance the growth and yield of plants by manual slashing maintenance and selective chemical spraying methods on certain plots. Herbicides used for spraying are not included in the class of banned pesticides based on WHO standards (Class 1A / 1B) or substances regulated by Rotterdam Convention, Stockholm Convention, FSC standards, also applicable law and regulations.

Fire is a major threat to our plantation, which is the main asset of our business. There is no advantage for PT MHP to burn the forest, and there is no tolerance for the perpetrators of forest fires.

Consider the existence of community settlements living in and nearby the company's work area resulting in the potential for forest fires. Company efforts to avoid this potential require involving communities gathered in Fire Concerned Community Group (KMPA) at the village level as an important part of minimizing the risk of forest and land fires.
