The net loggable area has been over-estimated by an estimated 47,000 ha in the FMA document. Also the estimated volume per hectare is questionably high.

project (provided the volume per hectare is verified unchanged). There is a suggestion that a Provincial Government-supported oil palm development is being planned within the project area.
