In this study 30 coppice oak trees(Quercus brantii Lindl.) with least diameter of 5 centimeteres were chosen with random classification. Characteristics such as the number of sprouts, the diameter, total height, and the large and small diameter of crown were measured. For this purpose, the diameter ranges of the oak trees were devided into 5 cm classes and at least the growth factors of 3 trees from each class were measured. The wet weights of different organs including leaf, branch and trunk or main stem were also measured. Soil samples of all plots were analysed in the laboratory and the amount of carbon in these samples were measured. Also samples of the different organs of the trees were analysed to estimate the amount of net Carbon. The results of this study showed that the amount of percent net Carbon sequestrated was 27.81 tons/ha, of which 16 tons belonged to soil and 11.82 tons was sequestrated by the treeschr('39') organs. There figures are equivalent to 102.09 and 43.14 tons/ ha of Co2, respectively. There was significant differences between the trunks and the other organs as well as between diameter classes of sprouts in terms of the amount of sequestrated Carbon. The economic value of the sequestrated Carbon amounted to 6193.94 US$, its yearly value was about 154.84 US$. This study showed that Kamfirooz forest area has a great potential for Carbon sequestration.
