Abstract

This study quantified the above and below ground carbon storage, and soil organic carbon content in a 4 years old Acacia mangium plantation in the Bengkoka Forest Plantation, Sabah. A random systematic sampling method was used for conducting the forest inventory. Two circular plots of 0.25 ha were established in the plantation area. Diameter breast height (DBH) of every tree was taken by using diameter tape. All sampling and measuring points (soil and plant) were established at the respective position within these plots. Calculations were based on estimated above ground (ABG) and below ground (BGB) living plant biomass and soil organic carbon (SOC) at depth 0-30 cm. The total ecosystem carbon storage was 91.89 t C ha-10f which 38.52 t C ha-1 is attributed to ABG and 53.37 t C ha-1 to BGB.
