Abstract

An increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide is a serious environmental concern. The objective of this study was to assess carbon sequestration by teak plantations with varying ages from 21 to 36 years old. 36-year-old teak plantation had highest total above and below ground carbon and soil organic carbon which were 45.6 tCha-1and 180 tCha-1, respectively. Teak plantation can help alleviate the problem of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration.
