Furthermore, in 1993 with the Decree of the Minister of Forestry No.471 / Kpts-II / 1993 dated September 2, 1993, the status of the area turned function into Nature Reserve.The forest here is not natural forest but is an artificial forest of reforestation. In 1980, when the area was still a protected forest, by a forest figure of North Sumatra, the area was chosen as a site for reforestation activities with the planting of Meranti (Shorea sp.)|
The success of the reforestation efforts has formed a forest of composition of the same species, which is meranti and produces a tropical rainforest of dipterocarp that is the same age as the same highland forest stratum. Meranti stands have now reached a height of 28-30 meters with a trunk diameter of 60-80 cm.
This forest feature is a thin layer of soil and the roots of trees can not penetrate deep into the soil, so many of them develop supporting roots that support the tall and straight trunks.
This area is very potential in the development of research in the field of forestry, ecology, as well as to study the trees (Arboretum)
