    The imminent rise in the cost of raw material used by the forest industry in the Dominican Republic requires volumetric tables that are capable of estimating, as precisely as possible, the volumes of trees and stands that provide the raw material. Accuracy in the estimation is essential for the rational planning of forest management. This study presents an equation for the estimation of volume, which was later used to create a table of cubic quantities of wood stands of Pinus occidentalis Sw., which are used and managed within a plan of reordering of natural forests by Plan Sierra in its area of influence. The equation obtained in this study is compared with that generated by Gil and Cuevas (1986) used for the construction of the cubing table used for 14 years. It is intended to substitute the existing table, for which the samples were taken from stands of trees that possess specific characteristics and differ in their development (They are smaller and thinner) and in soil and climate from the rest of the area of influence of Plan Sierra. The sample for the existing table was 40 trees, while, for this study, we sampled 191 trees representative of the three different zones that occur in the Sierra.
