Abstract

On Earth, trees serve as a carbon sink. The only method in nature by which carbon moves through ecosystems is used by plants as CO2 in photosynthesis. Every year, there is a global decline in the number of trees; everyone is aware of the causes contributing to global climate change. By using a non-destructive or allometric technique, we calculated the carbon storage from the height and girth data that were accessible. A study was carried out on the main campus of the Kamla Nehru Institute of Physical and Social Sciences (KNIPSS), which covers approximately 45 acres of land. The data was gathered through an extensive field survey. Study shows two families are dominant on campus that is Caesalpiniaceae and Moraceae. Maximum carbon stock and carbon sequestration were found to be respectively 2065.758 kg/tree and 7581.332 CO2eq/tree in the species named Ficus bengalensis belonging to the Moraceae family.
