Abstract:

The present investigation were carried out in split plot design using six land use system, natural grassland (T1), natural forest (T2), agriculture field (T3), rubber plantation (T4), teak plantation (T5) and tea plantation (T6) at three soil layers and replicated thrice under Pasighat Forest Division of East Siang District, (Arunachal Pradesh). The results have revealed higher total biomass production level (770.78 t ha-1) by teak plantation followed by natural forest (424.54 t ha-1), which affect the carbon stock and carbon sequestration potential. While minimum of total biomass production was found in natural grassland. Soil organic carbon and soil organic stock was higher in natural forest and teak plantation, enhances belowground carbon storage. As a result, the maximum total carbon stock was recorded in teak plantation (405.13 t ha-1) followed by natural forest, rubber plantation, tea plantation and agriculture field while minimum total carbon stock was recorded in natural grassland (8.44 t ha-1). The study highlights the opportunity to increase carbon storage potential through trees.
