APRIL protects its mill wood supply by prohibiting the use of fire in forest concessions. The company policy aligns with Indonesian law which forbids the use of fire to clear land. Nevertheless, fire and haze are an annual problem especially during the dry season, usually from June to October. As a recent CIFOR report highlighted, sometimes the fires started outside the forestry concessions as a cheap way to clear land, spread into forestry concessions. Sometimes these people occupy land inside forestry concessions and start fires.
