In order to evaluate the productivity of established A. mangium seven forest variables related to timber production were studied during three years. The sampling areas included Salaminas, Camajuaní road, kilometer 13.9 (Site 1) and Sheets Manacas Model Forest in 25.9’’ latitude 22º 39’ North and longitude West 80º17’43.43’’ (Site 2). The data were the professional package STATGRAPHICS CENTURION, Version XVII2006. It was shown that in the site 2 were reached the best indicators in diameter at breast height, total height, height of insertion of the cup and basal area. The best correlations were obtained between crown diameter and diameter at breast height, total height, basal area and volume, with a correlation coefficient of 0.6945, 0.7061, 0.7614 and 0.8004 respectively. The study demonstrated the relationship between the crown diameter with the site conditions and the density of planting, as an important indicator of productivity.
