About

The Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) is a statutory agency of the Government of Malaysia, under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. FRIM promotes sustainable management and optimal use of forest resources in Malaysia by generating knowledge and technology through research, development and application in tropical forestry. FRIM is located in Kepong, approximately 16 km northwest of Kuala Lumpur.


In late 1926, the Chief Conservator of the Forest (equivalent to today’s Director of Forestry), G.E.S. Cubitt, asked Dr F. W. Foxworthy to establish a separate forest research unit for the Forestry Department. It was Foxworthy who selected the present site, at Kepong. He was also to become the institute’s first Chief Research Officer.


Within two years in 1928, the first 42 hectares (100 acres) of experimental plantation (mainly dipterocarps, tall hardwood species) were in place. By that time the construction of the main building had begun. The main building that was completed in following years was to remain the sole centre for the laboratories, herbarium and museum. New buildings were added after World War II.


The initial stage saw some 125 hectares of plantation established at the Institute. Plantation trials with exotic species started in the early 1930s. The plantations covered 154 hectares just before the outbreak of World War II in Europe in 1939, and before the Japanese occupation of the Malay Peninsular in 1941 – 1945. The ground of the Institute expanded by a further 192 hectares in 1962 and 1964 to total 600 hectares until now.

Through an Act of Parliament, the Malaysia Forestry Research and Development Board (MFRDB) was formed to administer the Institute, which was named The Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM). This historic change was announced by the Ex-Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when he visited FRIM on 11 June 1984.


Tourist Attractions

This 600 hectares of FRIM’s tropical forest contains a massive 15,000 species of flora and fauna. Guests surely will be amazed by the arboretums or living museum of trees. It is advisable to head on to the Information Counter and purchase several brochures depicting the plants that will be encounter during the nature journey adventure.


FRIM Canopy Walkway

The FRIM Canopy Walkway is suspended 30m from the ground and spans over 200m from tree-to-tree. The ticket is available at the Souvenir Counter located in the same building as the Information Counter. It is priced at RM 5 per adult and RM 1 per child. The walkway is open daily from 9.30 am until 2.30 pm. It is closed every Monday and Friday. The closure in the afternoon is because of the strong wind blows.

From the Information Counter, the journey to the starting point of the walkway usually takes about one-hour hike using the trail called the Rover Track.

Effective 16 July 2016, only 60 visitors per day are allowed to use the walkway. Booking is required a day prior to the visit and a guide is also compulsory.


FRIM Waterfall

As guests coming from the Canopy Walkway, they may opt to walk and follow the signage that shows the direction to the picnic area. The waterfall allows people to have some fun in the water while enjoying the refreshing and cool environment.


FRIM Nature Trails

There are a few nature trails setup for exploration. Among the popular ones are the Keruing Trail and the Salleh Nature Trail. A must-see spot is the “Crown Shyness” phenomenon – the “puzzle-like” pattern of tree crowns separated by gaps.
