Influence of thinning on carbon storage in soil, forest floor and coarse woody debris of Larix kaempferi stands in Korea



Influence of thinning on carbon storage in soil, forest floor and coarse woody debris of Larix kaempferi stands in Korea



Forest Science and Technology 8(2): 116-121



This study examined the effects of thinning intensities on carbon (C) storage of soil, forest floor and coarse woody debris (CWD) in Larix kaempferi stands, Korea. Two study stands were located in Gwangneung Experiment Forest (Stand 1: 31 4 years old) and Muju (Stand 2: 51 6 years old). These stands were thinned in 21Each stand was divided into three plots by different thinning intensities based on removed volume: no thinning (control, %), moderate thinning (M, 2%), and heavy thinning (H, 3%). The C storage of soil at 5 cm depth, forest floor, and CWD was measured in 21Total C storage of H plot was significantly higher than that of control plot and M plot in Stand 1 (control: 64.6 t C ha?1, M: 62.2 t C ha?1, H: 83.7 t C ha?1). A similar tendency was also found in Stand 2; total C storage of H plot was significantly higher than that of control plot and M plot (control: 137.8 t C ha?1; M: 138. t C ha?1; H: 169.6 t C ha?1). Initial effects of thinning intensities on C storage were analyzed a.
