Abstract

The community green space type is well-known as a public place with a superior aesthetic value. In contrast, this green space type can also have the principal ecological value because of the vegetation cover. This study was estimated the above-ground biomass and carbon stock of each tree species within the community green spaces in both coastal and terrestrial habitat to select some potential species to be more developed within both community green spaces in order to escalate the ecological value of the green spaces (carbon storage in a town area). All woody plants with a diameter at breast height (dbh) ≥ 20 cm were identified by the census method within three sampling plots in both Laman Brenda Park (Site 1) and Pamedan Ahmad Yani Park (Site 2). This study found that the tree community in Site 2 stores a higher carbon stock (15,433 kg/ha) than in Site 1 (1,744 kg/ha). The number of individual trees is the main driving factor of the amount of carbon stock on both sites. Some species from Lauraceae, Fabaceae, and Meliaceae that are incredibly tolerant of small mineral content soils, salinity, and lack of water content should be more developed in Site 1, specifically.
