CARBON SEQUESTRATION BY DIFFERENT SPECIES OF TREES IN TANDO JAM, PAKISTAN
Survey was conducted in Tandojam city for the identification of different trees species existence. This study reveals the results of trees height, DBH, AGB, BGB, BIOMASS & carbon sequestration. The study shows decline in vegetation in TandoJam city from 1990 to 2020 by using NDVI formula through ArcMap 10.7.1 and cloud-computing program Google Earth Engine. In city the populations of trees are 7308 and only 20 species were identified. Azadirachta indica being the dominant specie having population of 2451, while Tamarindus indica having lowest number (11 trees only).

Moreover, 108.91 cm being larger diameter in Ficus religiosa and minimum diameter was of 25.92 cm was seen in Cassia Fistula. Conocarpus erectus tress possess bulk amount of biomass of 1021680 Kg as compared to Cordia myxa (6194 Kg) having carbon sequestration of 510840 Kg and 3074 Kg respectively.
