After publication we discovered that some of the vernacular names used by some communities were in fact a different species than initially anticipated. Therefore, although the vernacular is correct, the scientific name should be corrected. This confusion was due to the variety of vernacular names used for each species, which depend mostly on the ethnic group. The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused to the readers by these changes. 1. Change in Main Body Paragraphs We have found inadvertent errors in our paper published in  Forests   2014 , 5 , 3327–3343: On page 3334, lines 10–11 and 19. Line 10: The sentence “  Rhizophora racenosa ” should be “  Rhizophora spp . ” Line 11: “  Avicennia africana ” should be “  Avicennia germinans ”. Line 19: The sentence “  Pterocarpus violaceus” should be  Pterocarpus erinaceos ”. On page 3336 lines 15–16. OPEN ACCESS    Forests   2015 , 6    396  Line 15: The sentence (  Pterocarpus violaceu ) should be (  Pterocarpus erinaceus ). Line 16: The sentence “pau de incenso 4.9%” should be “pau-de-incenso (  Daniellia oliveri ) 4.9%”. 2. Change in “Figure 3” The author wishes to make the following corrections to this paper [1]. Due to errors encountered in the Latin names of the tree species which vernacular names were collected during field work. NOTE: The Latin designation corresponding to the vernacular name “Bulô” was not identified that is why we changed the Figure by adding its value to the category “Other”): Figure 3.  Tree species used for fuel thwood: Bulô—Setara pumila; Bissilon—Khaya senegalensis; Bianque—Alstonia boonei; Farroba—Albizzia gummifera; Canafistra-Peltophorum dubium; Mampataz—Parinari excelsa; Pau de remo—Sapotaceae; Pau de Carvão—Prosopis africana; Mambode—Detarium senegalense; Pau de sangue—Pterocarpus violaceus; Mangueira—Mangifera indica L.; Veludo—Dialium guineense.
