Aniba perutilis and Pachira quinata (Figure 1) are valuable forest species in South America wood market. A. perutilis wood is used for light onstruction, veneer and furniture manufacture; and P. quinata wood is used for turnery, light construction and furniture manufacture. These species are harvested in the natural forests taking them to be in critical danger and in danger of extinction, respectively. Few forest plantations of P. quinata are scattered in Colombia but none of A. perutilis. There is a substantial lack of information about the growth of Neotropical forest species, which constitutes the first steps to develop the forestry sector.
