It is also possible there is a fifth plantation belonging to the company - a Global Forest Watch dataset lists "LPF/0043 Sarawak Planted Forest - SFD" as belonging to "KTS/Samling/Ta Ann". Also, the background suggests that forest Management Unit (FMU) No. 19 was gazetted as Class II Commercial Forest Reserve in the year 1984. The FMU was divided into two parts which are FMU 19(A) Deramakot Forest Reserve and FMU 19(B) Segaliud Lokan Forest Reserve (SLFR) which is managed by KTS Plantation Sdn. Bhd.

SPOTT monitors global media sources for coverage of assessed companies. The media monitor gathers reports about specific activities related to the assessment indicator categories. ZSL does not assess or score the validity of media coverage, but users can explore the media monitor to provide context on implementation, and infer risks associated with reported operations on the ground.
