Author(s):
Nikitha P, Nagesh K, Shivaputra B and A Nirmala
Abstract:
The study was carried out to investigate the biomass and carbon stock of avenue plantations under Haritha haram programme in Telangana state. Enumeration was done to estimate the biomass, carbon stock of trees in National highway-65, State highway-01 and rural roads. Total biomass under National highway-65 was recorded maximum in Azadirachta indica (2121.07 tonnes), State highway-01 was highest in Azadirachta indica (532.62 tonnes), in Rural roads Peltophorum pterocarpum (166.12 tonnes). Total carbon stock in National highway-65 showed highest in Azadirachta indica (1060.53 tonnes), while State highway-01 showed in Azadirachta indica (266.31 tonnes) and in Rural roads Peltophorum pterocarpum (83.06 tonnes).
