Menjadi seorang forester bukanlah pekerjaan yang mudah, apalagi bagi seorang perempuan. Saat ini, tidak banyak perempuan yang tertarik atau bahkan mencapai sukses dalam bidang ini. Tapi, hal ini justru menjadi tantangan bagi seorang Kristine Sitompul.

Kristine berhasil membuktikan kemampuannya dalam menjadi seorang forester. Bahkan, dia menjadi perempuan pertama yang menjabat sebagai Manager in Charge di Kerinci Central Nursery 2, milik APRIL.

Data from the APRIL Group and the government showed that after the Fire-Free Village program was implemented, fire incidents were reduced by 90 percent in the participating villages compared to the 2014 figures.

Why farmers burn land in Indonesia

Darwis, a 52 year old farmer, who works on a half-hectare of government-owned farmland in Pelalawan, Riau, describes how cheap it is to clear land using fires to make way for farming land, compared to if one has to use cleavers to cut trees and clean up tree roots with hoe.

With a box of matches and some gasoline --which are cheap for Indonesians--, he said hectares of land can be burnt, as fire is typically quick to spread during the dry season, the perfect time for traditional farmers to prepare the land.
