The timber volume and important value index of plant species of tree layer, and plant species diversity in community forest and in holly hill forest of Daka village, Xishuangban-na, south Yunnan, China were studied. The results showed that the timber volume in holly hill was 1.91 times of community for-est, as the local farmer for timber consumption had collected the latter. Shannon - Wieimer diversity index (H) of community forest was 2.57, less than that of holly hills, which were 2.84.
