Abstract


The existence of forests as a life support system has provided benefits for human life, especially in the current era where environmental issues regarding climate change and global warming are starting to emerge. The existence of forest areas are called green open space or urban forest. The existence of urban forests is very important for the balance of the microclimate in urban areas. Langsa City Forest is an area with an area of ​​about 10 hectares which functions for the preservation, harmony and balance of urban ecosystems which include environmental, social and cultural elements. Determination of the sample using purposive sampling method with random start. Sampling technique used 12 plots with an area of ​​about 10 hectares, tree biomass calculation using allometric equations. Data obtained from the Langsa City Forest in the calculation of carbon in 12 plots, the plot that has the highest amount of carbon is 6 with a value of 225.74 tC/Ha and the plot that has the amount of carbon with the lowest value is 1 with a value of 16.54 tC/Ha. The average carbon value in Langsa City Forest is 119.07 tC/Ha. There are 5 plots that have the highest average value, namely plots 2, 6, 8, 9, and 10 also 7 plots have below the average value, namely plots 1, 3, 5, 7, 11 and 12. Total carbon plots in the forest Langsa City is 1428.84 tC/Ha with an average carbon in the area of ​​119.07 tC/Ha and a standard deviation of 65.35 tC/Ha.
