CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Growth and aboveground carbon of trees estimated using the FORCASTREE (SExI-FS) model: possible inputs for land restoration and carbon project in the Philippines

Export citation

In this report, we present the results of a projection of potential aboveground carbon storage of four tree-based practices using FORCASTREE (a model FOR simulating growth and CArbon of foreST and agroforest tREEs): a tree-tree growth and interaction model, formerly known as SExI-FS (Spatially Explicit Individual-based Forest Simulator), developed by the World Agroforestry (ICRAF). The four tree-based practices combine fast- and slow-growing and native and exotic tree species: (1) a mixture of different Dipterocarp species, (2) native and exotic non-Dipterocarp species, (3) Dipterocarp, fruit trees, and cacao, and (4) Dipterocarp species, native non-Dipterocarp species, fruit trees, and cacao. Scenarios of tree mortality (with or without mortality) and tree density (400 or 1100 trees per hectare) were considered for each practice.
