In addition to that, dipterocarp trees take a VERY long time to grow to maturity. In fact, it takes on average, about years for a dipterocarp to attain a canopy height of 30 m and 60 cm trunk is based on long term observation work at FRIM (Forest Research Institute of Malaysia) and in jungle study plots.

Tree biodiversity data is presented for a 1-ha permanent study plot on a low slope position of the Kuala Belalong valley in Temburong District, Brunei, Borneo. This is the first study in the region to document the tree flora of a low slope. All trees ≥5 cm at m were mapped, measurements of dbh and height taken, and identified to species and morpho-species by: The small state of Brunei Darussalam, lying on the north-west coast of Borneo, is of botanical importance and diversity out of all proportion to its size.
