Bangladesh Forest Department attempted ecological restoration of its denuded natural forests by establishing the first Eco-park at Sitakunda in the South-eastern Chittagong hills in 2000. The semi-evergreen sub-tropical forest has been lying denuded of aces for years. The present study was conducted in December 2003 by taking a systematic sample of 50 circular plots each of 5.05 m in radius from a 20 ha patch of the Eco-park, where non-woody vegetation has been routinely removed since 2000 in order to favor natural regeneration. The objective was to examine coppices and sprouts coming from stumps and root- suckers, respectively. In each plot regeneration were identified to species and their height measured A total of 1401 individuals were found that represented 63 species. Most of the individuals were in the height classes 1-2 m (617) and less than 1m (529). It appeared do native forest ecosystem could be restored in denuded areas even when se ed-bearing trees are almost absent.
