Department of Silviculture





Department of Silviculture

Department of Silviculture, Faculty of Forestry (IPB) was founded on the basis of Decree of IPB rector number 112/K13/OT/2005 on 2 August 2005 and constituted the first silviculture department in Indonesia.

Vision of Department of Silviculture is becoming the prominent study program in Asia with main competence of Tropical Silviculture, with entrepreneurship character, and is based on harmony. This competence mandate is manifested into 3 divisions within Department of Silviculture, namely Division of Forest Ecology, Division of Silviculture, and Division of Forest Protection. 

Competence of Division of Forest Ecology is applied at the stage of pre and post development/rehabilitation of forest ecosystem, starting from studying the characteristics of ecosystem types, development of superior tree species, maintaining and improving biogeochemical cycles, identification and development of interaction models between trees/forests and environment for improving productivity and quality of the environment, and studying the effect of forest development toward quality of soils, water and microclimate.

Competences of Division of Silviculture are improvement of growth site quality (comprising tree ecophysiology, mycorrhiza technology, rhizobium technology, fertilizer application technology, organic matter application technology, soil water absorption and storage technology), genetic improvement (comprising forest genetics, tree improvement, management of seed sources, vegetative propagation, seed technology), system and techniques of silviculture (comprising development of silvicultural system, agroforestry, planning and making of tree plantation, planting and plantation maintenance), and ex-mining area reclamation and revegetation.

Competence of Division of Forest Protection are forest fire control and assessment of impact of forest and land fire on the basis of fire behavior and tropical forest ecosystem,  development of forest entomology studies (including useful arthropods and harmful arthropods on the basis of ecosystem), development of analysis and identification system of forest pathology, development of system of controlling disturbance toward forests, and development of monitoring and analysis method of forest health at various forest functions.
