Indonesia's tropical forests have an important large amounts of carbon and biodiversity land. The landcover change of the forest for other uses such as agriculture or plantations, particularly in the carbon-rich peat land, making Indonesia become one of the biggest greenhouse gas emitters in the world. Along with the increase of the earth's temperature that rising quite sharply in recent years, Arboretum storage development programs are important in reducing air pollution. Arboretum storage

One of the Arboretum in the province of West Kalimantan is the area Arboretum Sylva Faculty of forestry Universitas of Tanjungpura Pontianak. The area is an planted with trees and other vegetation forming a structure resembling a forests and an area for the conservation of forest germplasm. It is needed to do re-measurement to search for the growth of the carbon stock in the Arboretum Sylva Tanjungpura University during a period of six years after the initial measurement. This research aims to register total value of (carbon stock) in the area of the Arboretum of the University of Tanjungpura Sylva. The method used for the research was survey sampling with non destructive measurement assesment for tree stage. Data collection was done by census/sampling intensity (100%). While for the level of sapling, pole stage, stake and necromass were done by nested plots. The results show carbon stock stored for the per unit area was 255.55 tons/Ha and the value of carbon stored whole area was 817.76 Tons. Keywords: stored carbon, tropical forests, Urban forests
