    This study was carried our in the Central Plateau of Chiapas. The objective was to obtain equations for estimating biomass of pines and oaks, as dry weight, taking total height and diameter as independent variables, and total, stem, canopy and small branches and leaves weights as dependent variables. Green weight was determined from samples from each part of the trees, and then those samples were oven dried to determine dry weight. From the sample results, the total dry weight of the different parts of the trees was inferred. Linear and non-linear regression analyses were used to fit several models. Appropriateness of fit was determined using residual sum of the squares and corrected coefficient of determination for linear regression and pseudo coefficient of determination for non-linear regression. The equations can be applied to similar tree species. Evaluating biomass, it will be possible to calculate assimilated carbon by the trees.

    Keyworks: equation, estimation, biomass, assimilated carbon, regression.
