The Batutegi Forest Management Unit (FMU) has implemented Social Forestry programs, one of which is the Community Forest (HKm) scheme. The high social capital owned by forest farmer groups will facilitate the implementation of the HKM program in the field and can be a problem-solving solution. The variables of social capital, namely mutual trust, cooperation, and tolerance, will be able to build networks both within community groups and with other community groups. There have been many types of research on the correlation between community characteristics and community perception of community forest management (HKm), but fewer studies related the social characteristics HKm’s members to their social capital. Under these conditions, the research which has the objective to analyze the correlations of social characteristics and the elements forming the social capital of forest farmers managing HKm is needed. Data was collected in December 2018 and using interviews by open-ended and semi-structured questionnaires. Respondents amounted 86 persons are member of Sinar Harapan and Mahardika HKm Forest farmers group (HKm Gapoktan). Non-parametric test using Spearman Rank is a data analysis method in this study. The results showed that social characteristics of Gapoktan HKm Mahardika members are correlated with elements of social capital i.e. income and length of stay correlated to trust, age correlated to network and income correlated to norms. Meanwhile, Gapoktan HKm Sinar Harapan members only have one element of social capital that correlated to social characteristics, namely trust which correlated to age, education, income, and length of stay.
