Estimating Carbon Storage on Teak (Tectona Grandis Linn. F)

Mochamad Chanan, Aniek Iriany


Most of the areas of production forest management in Java island spread among East Java, Central Java and West Java. On the other hand, the management of production forests is consequential to the changes in vegetation due to the process of planting and harvesting the plantation. Plantation potential changes will cause changes in carbon storage which is stored in the areas of production forest. Information about patterns of changes in carbon storage, in particular on teak forest, is vital and urgent so that it can be used to help governments to predict and identify deposit patterns or carbon storage and their changes as early as possible. Next, steps to be taken based on the information and the demands of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) program can be determined.  The results showed that there is a correlation between plantation age on biomass content and carbon of teak plantations; the higher the age of the plantation will be followed by an increase in the diameter of the tree, higher biomass storage and carbon content of teak plantations. The biggest biomass and carbon storage stored in research areas are at the tree level in class age IV, whose biomass average is 406.67 ton/ha and carbon average is 101.67 ton/ha.
