The demand of wood has increased over time to fit the people's demand. However, this contributes to the logging activity that eventually affects the tropical forest. Thus, planting a fast-growing tree like Macaranga gigantea is one of the approaches that can reduce the dependency on timber production from natural forest. Hence, this plantation tree species has the potential to become one of the alternatives to overcome this problem. Macaranga gigantea is locally known as the `giant Mahang' due to its capability of fast-growing up to 15 m tall. This study aims to use the in vitro propagation and ex vitro propagation technique to culture the Macaranga gigantea. Surface sterilisation to establish an axenic culture and the application of the pre-treatment method is used to overcome the physical dormancy of the seeds.
