The Tanimbar islands are of great interest for their biodiversity (lidon and kartiwa 2005). located in the province of maluku, indonesia, their main city, saumlaki, is also a district capital. The islands were extensively studied during the Tanimbar land-use planning project, funded by the European Commission, which covered land-use planning, biodiversity protection and biodiversity enhancement through participatory approaches (Jewell et al. 2006; astawa et al. 2006). The project team analyzed the wood production system in the southern part of Yamdena island (lidon and kartiwa 2005), where chainsaw activi- ties supply most of the wood to local villages, saumlaki, other indonesian islands, and abroad. Two villages of south Yamdena, wermatan and ilngei, specialize in chainsaw milling, although at a very rudimentary level. wermatan is accessible only by sea and has an economy shaped by its traditional social structure. ilngei, which is very close to saum- laki and connected to it by a paved road, has a comparatively advanced state of economic development that is reflected in its wood production system (shantiko et al. 2004).
