As soon as the order of reforms to replace the turn of the new order that's when people in the mountains all over the archipelago started to hit the ceiling clear-cut trees in the forest to be used as field corn, cassava and others depending on the level of soil fertility in the local forest. In East Java around the palace ruins Sri Aji Joyoboyo the hills Klotok and mountains Wilis situation worse. Direct klotok bald hill and forest at the foot of Mount Wilis and back in just a few short years has turned into a cornfield. To open the corn fields of rare trees that live in the hills Klotok and mountains Wilis cleared, and as a result of mountainous land through the mediation of the roots of old trees hundreds of years old could no longer absorb rainwater. And not in the long term has to bring in a big flood that hit lowland areas, Banyakan, Kediri district, located within a radius of several kilometers of mountains Wilis and hills Klotok.
Similarly, a state in areas Lodoyo, South Blitar already thin forest becomes bare and visible from a distance as a barren hill. Small example above could be made if the long list includes all forest areas in the archipelago.
Local forestry officials shrinking population guts to face ferocity which simultaneously moving forest plunder, they save themselves protecting their own tails.
Natural state in a corner of Java that can describe the archipelago as a whole has become Edict Sabdo Palon in the fifteenth century, which reads as follows:
" Later there will be the most miserable period in Java/Archipelago in the year "lawon sapta ngesti aji". At that time,someday in the future will occured earthquakes, volcanoe erruptions and who someone who wanted to cross the river when he arrived in the middle of the river suddenly changing the river flow was strong due to sudden flash floods, the river also overflowed into the surrounding area and from the ocean will appears tsunami attack The great flood (flash flood) it will continue to occur and eating/swallowing victim falling everywhere.\"
Klotok hills is the famous with a cave Selomangleng and near the palace Kediri in the past called Mount Emas Kumambang be a source of livelihood for local people in the vicinity of the palace of Sri Aji Joyoboyo in the eleventh century. All are available in abundance in the hills of Emas Kumambang, firewood, animal hunting, medicinal plants, fodder, and other. In the Dutch colonial hill Emas Kumambang changed the name to be replaced by the resident Klotok hill, a hill full of colonial or form of pest animals and insects.
Year lawon sapta ngesthi aji still facing in the future, when was that? For it will come together the destruction of ecosystems of the most miserable people of the archipelago is the lack of clean water sources, and this means the occurrence in arid regions. Floods continued to erode the layer of fertile soil in the area subsequently became fertile and barren land not produce anything. And in turn, gone are the source or spring water. That's a vicious cycle that would occur without can be prevented or resolved by the state though!
