Abstract

Forest destruction is increasing in various areas in Indonesia. If the countermeasure is not carried out, the forest destruction will get worse. One of the perpetrators of forest destruction is the community in the forest village (Desa Hutan), and the network is the capital owners and industrial businesses that require forest products. The countermeasure will hardly happen without community involvement. Based on the description, there are some problems as follows, how is the effectiveness of social involvement in overcoming the forest destruction problem through the use of land under the stand (tegakan); how to strive the social behavior to respond the utilization lands programs under the stand (tegakan). Moh. Solehatul Mustofa 1The results of this study indicate that based on Semirejo and Klakah Kasihan Village cases, it is known that the empowerment of the community through land use of stand(tegakan) can effectively support the countermeasures of forest destruction.
