AbstractForest encroachment for coffee farming practices in Sumberjaya, Lampung province, Sumatra, Indonesia, has created serious problems in controlling state forestland in the province. Conflict of interest regarding land status and land uses has created multidimensional problems in controlling the utilization of state forestland. Efforts to rehabilitate state forestland that have been used for agriculture purposes (coffee) and settlements, not only hard to meet its objectives, but also create another problem. Conflicts between government apparatus (forestry officer) and the dwellers living within state forest lands in Sumberjaya area are among the problems. Yet, the existence of administratively recognized villages within protection forest, have brought the problems beyond the domain of Forest and Estate Ministry. There are also other ecological issues such as biodiversity losses, soil erosion etc., which are filling list of debatable environmental issues. The increasing rate of forest conversion for coffee farming in Sumberjaya area since early 1980’s, however, indicates that coffee farming in this area is attractive for farmers to cultivate.
