The rapid development of campus physical facilities has caused a decrease in green open space at the Universitas Negeri Semarang Unnes. Vegetation plays a role in absorbing and storing CO2, so that reduced green open space can reduce carbon stocks and contribute to increasing atmospheric CO2 emissions. Regarding on this matter, program sinks through CO2 uptake by vegetation need to be considered as an effort to reduce CO2 emissions. Information about the carbon stocks is required to support the program sink. The purpose of this study was to estimate the amount of above carbon stocks in Unnes. Tree carbon stocks are estimated through allometric equations and field measurements of several parameters such as diameter, height, number and species of trees. Carbon stocks in understorey, litter and necromass are estimated by measuring the dry weight. The results showed that above carbon stocks in Unnes were 289,92 Ton Mg/ha, or 6.188,57 Mg.
Key words: carbon stok / green open space / universitas negeri semarang
