Abstract

Vitality is a vigor value of the trees in responding to the environmental conditions. Vitality value is determined by calculating the damage location, cause of damage and damage severity. Vitality will affect to the wood quantity and wood quality. Quantitatively, the current timber production coming from community forests, especially Sengon (Paraserianthes falcataria) are still sufficient to meet the needs of the wood processing industries in Indonesia, but in term of quality, there are still many weaknesses on wood defects due to pest and dieses problems. Therefore, to obtain and to maximize the wood quality of timber planted by the community, the plantation should be in healthy conditions. Healthy trees are reflected in their minimum damage, where the damage could be caused by biotic and abiotic agents. Identifying the signs and symptoms of damage to trees provide valuable information about the condition of community forests in monoculture and in agroforestry planting system and show probable cause deviations from the expected conditions. Identifying the signs and symptoms of damage to trees provide valuable information about the condition of community forests in monoculture and in agroforestry planting system and show probable cause deviations. The trees with minimum damage conditions could explain the vitality of the community forest either in monoculture or agroforestry planting systems. This study aimed to determine the value of vitality status of community forest in monoculture and agroforestry planting systems for forest management decisions. Eight Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) cluster plots were established in monoculture community forest and eight FHM cluster plots were established in agroforestry planting system in Lampung province area. Vitality assessment of community forest monoculture and agroforestry planting system derived from the value damage index of the cluster-plot level based on FHM method; which is classified in to good, medium and poor. The results showed that the vitality status of community forest monoculture planting system are good (3 cluster-plots) and medium (5 cluster-plots); and agroforestry planting system are good (6 cluster-plots), moderate (1 cluster-plot), and poor (1 cluster-plot). It means the agroforestry planting system for Sengon is recommended to minimize the damage for having better good quality and sufficient quantity for timber production in wood-based industry. Keywords: tree damage conditions; value of vitality status; community forest; monoculture and agroforestry planting systems.
