Hills being ripped off for so-called "agriculture"
Free teh tarik anyone? The once pristine Sg. Brooke and Sg. Belatop are now just mud flows.
Logging is still widespread in Lojing. This is despite the national policy prohibiting logging at elevations above 1000m.
This is where teh tarik comes from. Land opened up for "agriculture" with almost no erosion control measures.
Land ownership in Lojing Highlands. I am sorry if you can't read the map. Almost 30,000 hectares have been given away to state-linked companies and state agencies and friendly companies over the past 20 years. Almost zero productivity expect for the timber that has been taken away. Mind you these are all highland country with mostly steep slopes.
