Rembang

In 1680 the VOC set up a trading post in Rembang, primarily in order to buy up wood. The extensive forests in the area were a source of wood highly suitable for export to Batavia where it was used in housing construction and for shipbuilding on the island of Onrust. In the early 18th century, the timber trade resulted in large-scale deforestation.
