Abstract: The objective of this research was to investigate the effects of removing aerial biomass and density of Atriplex lentiformis plantation on carbon sequestration and biomass in a split-split plot design with three replications in Ardestan, Iran. The results revealed that the highest amount of carbon sequestration produced by treatment of 2x2 m row spacing, annual removing and control height removal. The values of carbon storage of aerial biomass, among row spacing and removal of aerial biomass treatments were significantly different (p < 0.05). The highest carbon storage content was related also to 2x2 m row spacing and control with 60 cm height removing. None of the treatments was significantly different, concerning soil carbon storage (p < 0.05). Moreover, the highest biomass weight was in row spacing of 2x2 m while the lowest value was recorded in 6x6 m.
