Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the dynamics of stem carbon storage in a Semideciduous Forest, through the monitoring of 10 permanent plots established in the Mata da Silvicultura, Viçosa, Minas Gerais. All trees with DBH ≥ 5 cm were identified and measured in the years 1994, 1997, 2000, 2004 and 2008. The stems average carbon storage increased 47.9 ton.ha-1 from the year of 1994 to 61.81 ton.ha-1 in the year of 2008, representing, for the monitoring of 14 years, a regular increase of 0.994 ton.ha-1.year-1.
