The Tarumã district over the years has grown demographically in accelerated mode. In the neighborhood area, there is currently an environmental conflict due to the increase deforestation. These causes have been a major concern in this area. The study of this work relates this accelerated growth to the deforestation in the neighborhood, which is the object of study area. Images and shapes downloaded from the PRODES system were used in the site analysis, which were processed in the Arcgis 10. The results pointed out a very significant growth of deforestation at Tarumã area.
