AbstractThe Three-North (Northwest, North and Northeast) Shelter Forests Program (TNSFP) in China has effectively promoted vegetation growth and carbon sink in the temperate semi-humid and semi-arid regions. To compare the afforestation benefits of commonly used tree species in the area and explore the effect of environment on growth and carbon accumulation in plantations, backpack LiDAR was used to acquire 3 dimensional lidar point clouds of forests from a total of 480 pure plantation patches consisting of Pinus sylvestris (P.s.), Pinus tabuliformis (P.t.), Populus spp. (Pop.), and Robinia pseudoacacia (R.p.). Then, diameter at breast height (DBH), forest height, canopy coverage, and aboveground carbon accumulation were calculated for each plantation patches, which ranged from 7.0 to 37.3 cm, 1.5–14.5 m, 10–99 % and 4.2–205.9 Mg/ha, respectively. Generalized linear mixed-effect models and ANOVA were applied to account for the environmental constraints on the variations of forest parameters. Results showed that precipitation had a stronger effect on all the above parameters of plantations than temperature, and P.t. was more sensitive to climate than other three species. With regard to forest management in Pop. plantations, thinning could improve afforestation efficiency because carbon accumulation would reduce after the age exceeds 30 years. In contrast, P.s. populations maintained a continuous increase in carbon accumulation at least before 40 years old, while the radial growth of canopy became saturated after 12 years of age. The optimal planting density for P.s. and Pop. are about 1000 trees/ha, beyond which the increase in carbon accumulation will slow down or change rate of canopy coverage will be insignificant. Within the TNSFP area, P.t. and R.p. plantations would be more suitable in southern regions, while P.s. and Pop. plantations grow better in the northeastern regions. Meanwhile, mountains along the "Hu Line" showed high potential for growth and carbon accumulation for all tree species examined. © 2023
