The species name, dbh and tree height were recorded from the trees. A total of 1825 of individual trees were observed in the two 1-hectare plots with 43 family and 236 species. The most dominant and diverse species is Mallotus kingii with 195 individuals in the 2ha plot, total basal area 3.17m2, relative basal area 5.87% and IVI 22.99.
