This study was conducted in order to evaluate the population structure and the current status of seven timber species for Chocó, where a plot of 50x50, which were recorded in a zig zag all individuals with DBH≥10cm was established (adults). From the mother tree they were measured 15m radius (707m2 ) where a circular plot in which all individuals over 1.3m high and lower were recorded at 10 cm of DAP ( juveniles) was installed ; following the diagonals of the first plot 12 plots of 2m (4m2 ) where all individuals were recorded height between 0.3 and 1.30m were drawn . At the species level were recorded at Hymenaea oblogifolia and Dipterix oleifera with the highest density values , a total density of 19.8 ind/ha was found. Most individuals were located in the diametric class 30.1 to 40; height class for a form of inverted J secured the sustainability of the species was found.
