Mortgage loging and timber industries are a dilemma. While illegal logging has become a major scourge in the destruction of forests in Indonesia, on the other hand the timber industry relies heavily on providing sufficient quantities of timber. This study aims to analyze the performance of the timber industry as an impact of the implementation of a logging moratorium, while simultaneously analyzing the factors that determine community participation in illegal logging activities. Research has been conducted in six districts in Aceh using surveys and focus group discussions involving investors, workers, and owners of timber processing units and forest supervisors. The results showed that the timber industry in Aceh had experienced a significant setback in understanding the forest ecology system, education, the main source of logging before and after the moratorium was to determine community participation in illegal logging activities. Therefore it is necessary to disseminate logging moratorium related to understanding forest ecology, as well as empowering livelyhood for communities in forest buffer zones.
