Capacity of C sequestration of chestnut forests located in Western Spain



Capacity of C sequestration of chestnut forests located in Western Spain



Acta Horticulturae: 4, 119-126



The aim of this work was to study the variability and potential of C storage from the soils of Sweet chestnut coppices in Central-Western Spain, managed as coppices (timber production) or orchards (fruit production). Twenty-five chestnut coppices in the Old Kingdom of Leon and Extremadura (Western Spain) were selected at different altitudes and under different management systems. At those sites, we observed the depth of soil horizons, bulk densities and C and N contents of the epipedons.
