Routes for exports of illegally logged ramin timber in Indonesia

Year: 2007 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Ramin, Gonystylus sp., is a group of tropical hardwood species in South East Asia, listed as vulnerable on the IUCN red list, and the trade of the timber is regulated under CITES. Illegal logging of these species is common in Indonesia, even in protected areas. The timber is transported to sawmills in Indonesia and Malaysia and further exported to destinations in Asia, North America, Europe and elsewhere. Final market prices might amount to as high as USD 1000 per cubic metre.
