Abstract: "This report details the results of a consultancy carried out by the authors for CIFOR from September 1997 through February 1998. The aims of the project were as a follows: 1) to identify tree planting activities currently prominent in Indonesia; 2) to seek reasons for their ascendancy, with specific reference to influential actors capable of favouring certain activities and holding back others; of particular interest were the activities of regional government agencies which were hypothesised to be more instrumental than central government policy per se in determining what actually took place on the ground; 3) to monitor the perceptions of local and transmigrant populations regarding the opportunities and constraints associated with particular tree planting options; and 4) to briefly examine the environmental impacts of dominant tree planting activities."
