A qualitative evaluation of a ‘sangre de grado’ tree population along the Aguaytia watershed determined its abundance and latex production potential. Also, the flora species composition of the 9 year-old secondary forests was outlined. By collecting botanic samples, the species Croton draconoides was identified and its latex productions measured using two different techniques. In both cases, the production volumes were directly related to the d.b.h. measures. There were no statistically significant differences between the two latex extraction techniques. A production cost structure for one hundred ‘sangre de grado’ trees was defined and the projected income for the next five years estimated.
