Research and Development on Forest Management Practices

Forestry research in Malaysia dates back to the beginning of the century with the establishment of the Forest Research Institute in Kepong, near Kuala Lumpur as a research unit of the Forestry Department. In October 1985, the Institute became a statutory body, and is now known as the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM). FRIM is responsible for research on all aspects of forestry and forest products.
