                         Paulo, Brazil, from 1986 to 2010. In this region is situated the 
                         most important and largest extension of reminiscent of Mata 
                         Atl{\^a}ntica Biome reminiscent. This biome has been one the most 
                         exploited Brazilian biome since 1500, when Brazilian colonization 
                         begun. To achieve this goal, we use the GIS {"}SPRING{"} and 
                         images from Landsat 5 Satellite, TM sensor from 1986, 1990, 1995, 
                         2000, 2005 and 2010, distributed by the Brazilian National 
                         Institute for Space Research - INPE. The 
                         non-supervised-classification was applied to images in order to 
                         produce land use and land cover maps. After that, we intersect 
                         each classification for each date with the precedent date, so we 
                         can analyze the paths of each land use change, focusing forestry 
                         expansion in native's Mata Atl{\^a}ntica areas. The results show 
                         that eucalyptus plantations in the region have expanded mostly 
                         over fragments of Mata Atl{\^a}ntica. About 99.389 hectares of 
                         Mata Atl{\^a}ntica were transformed into forestry in 25 years, an 
                         average rate of 4000 ha per year. Clear-cut was largest between 
                         1990 and 1995, when 22810 hectares of rain forest were cut, and 
                         between 1995 and 2000, when 21430 hectares were cut.",
