Ninety plant species are recorded in four sampling plots of community forests by using vegetation sampling method and agrobiodiveisity assessment method of PLEC BAG guidelines. Sixty three plant species are managed species, which occupy 70 of total species in sample plots, used for medicines, timbers, fuel wood, fodders, wild fruits, wild vegetables and industry oils. The results of two monitoring sampling plots indicate that plant species diversity and arbor numbers and timber volume are decreas-ing because of over logging of timer and fuel wood in community forests. The community forests are badly destroyed because the forest ownership are not stable and lack of efficient management measures. Some strategies for community forest development and conservation are also discussed in the paper.
