However, some of trees with diameter of breast height (DBH) of 5 cm and above were measured and recorded to be analyzed. As a result, all species at the study site were compared with some results which were found equaled abundant according to Evenness Index that gave a value of 0.922; Margalef’s Index reflected a value of 17.01.
