A sign attached to a tree trunk in the forest indicates the border of the peat forest, which was part of the area initially degazetted for development by the Selangor government. An Orang Asli man picks leaves from a tree known as pokok kulim. The leaves are used for cooking as they have a smell similar to that of garlic. This plant, known as pokok puntat, is used in fishing as the liquid squeezed from its roots can cause fish to become bloated while remaining safe to eat. An Orang Asli man uses a blow pipe to hunt for food in the forest. Some of the darts, or 'damak', used by the Orang Asli in their hunting activities. The poison is extracted from the trees in the reserve. The wood from the trees also provides the Orang Asli with the material they need for furniture. Here, an Orang Asli man strips down some wood from the bertam tree in order to make a table. His hut in the forest is also made from the same bertam wood. An Orang Asli woman weaves a bag out of mengkuang leaves, material which the forest also provides. She also tends to the plants in her garden which she uses for medicinal purposes, especially to help pregnant women.
