PT. Tanjung Redep Hutani operates a timber license and associated pulp mill in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Fiber production from the plantations under the existing silviculture regime had not proven sufficient to sustainably supply the mill, resulting in a requirement to purchase more expensive fiber from other sources.
Brinkman Earth Systems was hired by PT. Tanjung Redep Hutani (TRH) to develop an integrated silviculture and timber supply management plan for the TRH license area, with the goal of increasing fiber production while delivering fiber at a competitive price per tonne. The resulting management plan included both strategies for optimizing silviculture systems, as well as license logistics and equipment planning to minimize the cost of harvest and delivery of fiber to the mill.
