The paper presents a detailed analysis of woody forest vegetation of Corbett National Park, at the foothills of Garhwal and Kumaun Himalaya. Twenty nine stands of tropical forest vegetation were studied. The vegetation consists of nine community types. Tree density was higher in Shorea robusta dominated communities and lowest in the Anogeissus latifolia-Acacia catechu community. Total tree basal cover was maximum in Shorea robusta dominated communities. Sapling and seedling regeneration was poor in Shorea robusta communities. Mallotus philippensis, Syzygium cumini and Diospyros tomentosa showed good regeneration both in sapling and seedling layers across the communities. Sapling and seedling species diversities showed negative relation with total tree basal cover. Most of the dominant tree species exhibited significant positive relationship between tree height and circumference at breast height in all the communities.
