Sustainable Management of Barbatimão in the Northern Minas Gerais State

ABSTRACT This study aimed to evaluate the management for the Stryphnodendron adstringens species from different intensities of selective cuts with diameter class control in the northern Minas Gerais state. The estimated production for preparation of the plans was obtained from equation for dry weight of bark (kg) and timber volume (m3) for an area of 31.28 ha and considering a commercial demand of the 7,000 kg.ha-1 of the barks. Ownership production were simulated ten management by GDq method. The plans were in multiples of ten from 10% removal G, up to clear cutting, totaling ten plans. The results indicated that the sustainable haverst should be carried within the range of 40 to 70% removal of basal area, which respectively showed the following productions backs and volume: 224.00 and 367.16 kg.ha–1; 0.63 m3.ha.–1 and 1.06 m3.ha–1. Therewith we conclude that the sustainable management of barbatimão in the northern Minas Gerais state is viable within the removal ranges from 40 to 70% of basal area starting from the control of the havest by GDq method.
