To guarantee a successful implementation of reduced impact timber harvesting, it is also recommended that guidelines be prepared for insertion of reduced impact timber harvesting within the TPTI system in the tropical natural forest in Indonesia; that training be conducted for chainsaw operators/fellers, tractor operators and felling and skidding foremen and timber harvesting supervisors and planners; that further research be encouraged to reduce environmental impacts in the tropical natural forest while simultaneously improving productivity and reducing harvesting costs, e.g. alternatives to tractor timber harvesting on steep slope, namely skyline or helicopter timber harvesting, which already have been put into practice several years ago in tropical natural forests in Malaysia and Indonesia.
