Find Forestry expertise in Singapore
Forestry, together with fisheries and agriculture, contributes less than 0.5% to the country’s GDP (2008). 3% of the total land area of Singapore is covered in forest (2005), and all of this is publically owned. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and the Singapore Botanical Gardens’ Jungle are Singapore’s largest forested areas. This area of forest has not undergone any change in size in the period of 1990–2005. The forest area is mainly preserved for conservation, and therefore is not productive. The country possesses a decent sawmilling industry, which processes wood from Singapore’s neighbours, and other related industries. These industries are however in decline, partly due to the government of Singapore’s preference for hi-tech industries.
