Shingle Maker

A Dayak man from the village of Ensibau in the Sanggau District of West Kalimantan splitting bolts of Dipterocarpus wood to make shingles. He is working in one of the village's many tembawangs.  I visited Ensibau in 1992 (thx, Judy), ran some inventory transects, and discovered that the village was managing over 120 tree species per hectare in their tembawangs. [NOTE: The entire State of New York contains about 150 different species of trees].
