Population structure of plants assists in identifying the health of plants species within a particular habitat. The aim of this study was to determine the population structure of Peltophorum africanum in Bolla-Tau village. Twenty-six 100m x 10m line transects were established within Peltophorum africanum Sond. Population. The height of the plants, stem circumference, healthiness of crown and information on whether the plant species was being harvested or not, were recorded. A total of 256 individuals were recorded from the study. The results showed that the population structure of P. africanum was bell-shaped and the Logarithmic analysis along with generalized log analysis depict that there is significant correlation between the plant height and stem circumference. Resprout of P. africanum individuals were only 18% and 82% of the individuals were harvested. The study observed that 43.8% of individuals had traces of crown damage as compared to healthy crown (35.9%).
