Assessment of Ecological Capability and Estimation of Aboveground Biomass in Plantations Darabkola Forest
Message:
Abstract:
TThe forest plantation strategy is to do with the identification of the most appropriate zones and the areas that are most suitable for different species. However, the success of this strategy requires the precise determination of the species ecological demands and the evaluation of the land before the establishment of the plantation. The purpose of this study is to assess the ecological capability and estimate the aboveground biomass for the forest plantation in Darabkola forest, so, the species could be prioritized according to these objectives, and also for future forest plantation in the same. In this study, at first, the suitable zones for the forest plantation was identified using the SQL search function in Arc GIS 10.3 software interface. Then, the carbon sequestration in forest plantation (per hectare) was estimated using the measured parameters of trees and alometric equations. Results showed that, by simultaneously considering the mentioned objectives, Maple, Coliseum maple and Ash, were ranked as the most compatible species from the ecological compatibility point of view, and the highest level of the carbon stock was found for oak species. Therefore, these species are in priority for forest plantation in the region. Due to the fact that, the former forest plantation focused mainly on considering the ecological potential of a given species, the current study emphasized taking into account the multiple objectives for the future forest plantation. In other words, in addition to the ecological capability, other goals should be considered.
