The objective was to characterize the timber sector of Boa Vista - RR, to provide information that can guide public policies for the sector. Eighteen loggers (17 loggers / points of sale; 01 sawmill) were submitted to the questionnaire. As for the time of experience in the wood market, it is noted that 50% of the companies had between 6 to 24 months of activity in the market and there were 6 enterprises with 120 months or more of experience. All companies originated in the municipality itself. 39% of the companies obtain their raw material from clear cut and forest management and 33% only from clear cut, from the municipalities of Rorainópolis and Caracaraí. 55% of the wood is sold in the municipality itself, the remainder going to the municipalities of Alto Alegre, Bonfim, Pacaraima and Cantá.
