AbstractThe present study was conducted in Solan Forest Division of Himachal Pradesh covering an area of about 57;158 ha. The aim was to estimate and assess the temporal change in carbon stock of the Chil Working Circle; in two forest ranges of the Division; Solan and Dharampur; over the period of 1956-2011. The inventory data of the working plans of Solan Forest Division from 1956-1957; 1984-1985 and 2002-2003 were used in the present study while field data for biomass estimation was collected for the year 2011. The results showed a declining trend in carbon stock over 1956-1984 period; however; an increasing trend over 1984-2002 was observed; which showed a further increase for the period 2002-2011. These fluctuating trends in the forest carbon stock can be related to increasing anthropogenic pressure on forests and the subsequent introduction of a ban on green felling envisaging efficient forest management; both of which affect the forest carbon pool significantly.
