Sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria)

Forest cultivation Albasia

Sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria) or Albasia Falcatta or Sengon laut (Javanese languange) is a plant which is being developed on a large scale in Indonesia today.

My knowledge of these plants are not native plants from Indonesia, but from other countries and therefore supported the climate, weather and environment in accordance with Albasia then finally developed for the needs of the forestry industry in Indonesia.

 At present the forestry industry is in trouble raw materials because of pressure from international society about global warming which Indonesia is one of the lungs of the world, while the if the Forestry Industry in Indonesia remains using raw materials from natural wood certainly would not have lasted long because as meranti, merbau, teak requires age or tens or even hundreds of years for a decent used as raw material forestry industry, which currently number fewer and limited.

It is also likely to make the fate of Indonesia's forestry industry currently is on the verge of destruction, which have sought a way out for solving this problem.

One alternative is Albasia or Sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria) which has the power to grow rapidly and only a short harvesting age of 5-7 years depending on local environmental conditions 
With the harvest age relatively quickly so many people who would benefit the land owners, farmers, seller and forestry industry, which in turn will also help overcome the problem of global warming towards a better world.

Many buyers are also asking for a product from Paraserianthes falcataria, to be processed into plywood, wood core, block board, fancy boards, melamine boards and laminated boards.
