Abstract:

The present study is carried out on the green oak forest of Jbel Aoua South, in the Central Middle Atlas. The objective of this work is to estimate the dry biomass of these stands while characterizing this zone in terms of soil and floristic potential. According to the results obtained, the estimated biomass production is 42,70t/ha, based on 30 sample trees using the dimensional analysis method, or an energy equivalent of 192.15106 kcal/ha, which represents a potential income of 3260 to 3586 DH/ha/year. The forage value of the green oak in the forest of Jbel Aoua South is 372 FU/ha. The soil studied is of the para-rendzine carbonate type with a sandy loamy texture, rich in potassium and moderately low in phosphorus.
Contribution/ Originality
This study is one of the very few studies which have investigated the matter of estimating the forest biomass of green oak forests in Morocco. This reality is leading to a growing interest in carbon sequestration projects based on woody species that store it in their biomass.
