Sadia Sabrina Tanni, Mohammed Mozammel Hoque

The research work was shown to calculate the composition of tree species in the Korean Export Processing Zone (KEPZ) of Bangladesh extending to an area of 2492 acres. In the study area, 108 tree species belong to 81 genera and 35 families have been collected from KEPZ. The dominant tree species of KEPZ were Acacia longifolia (Andrews) Willd., Acacia mangium Willd., Albizia procera (Roxb.) Benth., Syzygium cumini (L.) Skeels, Tectona grandis L.f., Swietenia macrophylla King, Terminalia arjuna (Roxb. ex DC.), Mangifera indica L. and Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam. on the other hand a rare species of Barringtonia acutangula (L.) Gaertn. found in this area. The result revealed the occurrence of 85 least concern species, 15 not evaluated species, 3 conservation dependent species, 4 vulnerable species, and one data deficient species. The result revealed the occurrence of 85 species (85.79%) least concern,15 species (15.14%) not evaluated, three (3) species (3.3%)conservation dependant, four (4) species (4.3%) vulnerable, and one (1) species (1.1%) data deficient. The tree species, which were studied, in this remaining forest, need consideration for instant conservation programs to prevent further degradation of the forest.
