ARE CONSECRATED FORESTS OF CARBON

B. K. Sharma

Abstract


Capacity of plant to settle environmental carbon dioxide and store it in biomass is adding to worldwide carbon cycle. Holy forests, one of the administrations for woodland administration, assume part in directing atmosphere by going about as sinks for carbon. Expecting to survey sequestrated carbon in tree the study was directed in two holy forests of Kathmandu valley, Nepal. Concentric round plots of 20m span were utilized for information gathering. Algometric condition having tallness, breadth, and particular gravity of tree was utilized to decide biomass. The ascertained biomass of tree was changed over to the carbon stock by utilizing carbon part. Tree types of both sacrosanct forests sequestered 15.08 metric huge amounts of carbon. The carbon stock was high in Quercus-Myrsine backwoods and low in Schima-Pyrus woodland.
