    Abstract: An uncontrolled utilization of land resources for biomass production can cause deterioration to the soil, so that the impact on the function and quality of soil. Soil deterioration for biomass production can be caused by the nature of the soil, or the result of human activities that cause soil disturbed or deterioration so that it can reduce the function of the soil as a medium for biomass production as normal. This research was conducted using a survey method, with observations and soil sampling, that was based on the results of a thematic map overlay scoring has been done before. This study aims to map out the conditions and status of the soils for the production of biomass in the eastern part of the Natuna Districtss based on the Government Regulation No. 150 of 2000 [1]. The mapping is used as a guideline in the surveillance and control of land degradation in eastern part of Natuna Districts. Some soil characteristics and limiting factor is contributing in the scoring that makes this land placed in the broken state, among others: soil texture, redox value, bulk density, and the soil permeability. The results showed that there are two classes of land degradation in the study area, namely minor damage and moderate damage. Areas with the minor soil deterioration were located on East Bunguran, Central Bunguran, and parts of the Northeast Bunguran. And the moderate soil deterioration was in the north part of the Northeast Bunguran and South Bunguran.
