Carbon sequestration has always been a matter of global discussion. It varies greatly with species and forest types. This study was carried out to assess and compare the carbon stock of mixed broad-leaved forests and conifer forests. The study was conducted in Mathagadi Rural municipality and Tansen municipality of Palpa district of Lumbini province of Nepal. Regeneration biomass was assessed through destructive sampling over the sample plots. Data were extracted from their operational plans of sampled community forests for biomass calculation. This study showed the total average carbon stock for the mixed broad-leaved forest was 80.84 tons per hectare and for conifer forest was 59.73 tons per hectare and it was found that mixed broad-leaved forest has more biomass and holds more carbon than that of conifer forest. This study suggested the promotion and management of broadleaved forest types for greater carbon sequestration.
