Carbon Sequestration and Growth of Stands of Cassia siamea Lamk. in Coal Mining Reforestation Area


Allometric equations resulting from the relationship between the diameter breast height and stem volume for Cassia siamea Lamk. stand in the coal mining reclamation / reforestation area is Y = 0.00013 X2.36351 with R2 = 0.96370. The relationship between diameter at breast height (DBH) with tree biomass for C. siamea where allometric equation for stem is Y = 0.3699 X1.9374 with R2 = 0.9869, for the branch is Y = 0.1782 X1.7148 with R2 = 0.9547 and for the leaves is Y = 0.1651 X1.5272 with R2 = 0.9469.
Keywords: Reforestation, Coal Mining, Carbon Sequestration, Allometric Equation, Carbon Sink.
