Description: This study reports growth and carbon storage of four bottomland hardwood forest sites in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley (LMAV) of southern Louisiana. Forest growth and carbon sequestration rates at the four sites were highly variable because of differences in stand composition, age, structure, and site hydrology. Mean annual carbon assimilation rates ranged from 1.9 - 3.4 Mg/ha/yr during a seven year period. The highest sequestration rates occurred in trees on the drier, ridge site. Remnant mature trees accounted for a large proportion of total carbon assimilated and stored and at each site. The carbon sequestration rates reported in this study are generally less than those reported by previous research of carbon storage capacity of bottomland hardwood forests in the LMAV.
