The  Dutch  enacted  forest  laws  in  Java  restricting  people's  access to  forests.

*  Wood  could  only  be  cut  for  specified   purposes  like  constructing  houses    and   making  river  boats.
*Wood  could  be  taken  from  specific  forests  but  under  close  supervision.

*  Villagers  were  punished  if  they  grazed  cattle  in  young  stands,transported  wood  without  a  permit  or  travelled  on  forest  roads  with  cattle  or  horse  carts.

*  First  the  Dutch  imposed  rents  on  lands  being  cultivated  in  the  forest.

*  Then  they  exempted  some  villages  from  these  rents  if  they  worked  collectively  to  provide  free  labour  and  buffaloes  for  cutting  and  transporting  timber.This  was  known  as  the  blangdongdiensten  system.

*  Afterwards  instead  of  rent  exemption  foret   villagers  wee  given  small  wages  but  their  right   to  cultivate on  forest  land  was  still  restricted.
