At Balung Plantation, we believe in the responsible management of our natural resources. That's why we're dedicated to ensuring that our teak trees not only provide quality, durable lumber, but are also grown and harvested sustainably. Our practices meet the strict criteria set by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ensuring our teak upholds high environmental and social standards.
Other then our steam boilers, hydro dams, recycled materials, tapioca waste into energy and many others, are our 3 in 1 Bio-gas installation. Please see diagram below, biogas is used for oil distillation and given to employees for cooking and so on. While the fertilizers are used for our many organic crops. Organic fertilizer sludge’s are re-directed back to the crops in the surrounding areas and the organic top grade delicious beef is also used for consumption.
But we don't just stop at teak. Our tree plantation is constantly evolving, with plans to plant the elegant burflower-tree (Jabon) and the sturdy Octomeles sumatrana (Benuang). Our goal is to plant 200,000 to 300,000 Benuang trees by 2025.
