The peat swamp forest ecosystem in Indonesia and especially in Jambi Province has decreased in area and has been damaged. The fact is that forest and land fires (karhutla) always occur on peatlands such as in 1997, 2014, and 2015, and also in 2019 forest and land fires still reoccur in several places, which causes an increase in material and mental losses. KPHP (Forest management unit) Unit XIII Muaro Jambi, as a forest manager at the site level, has a land cover in the form of secondary peat swamp forest and other landcovers. Changes in land use and forest deforestation due to fires are the cause of the release of carbon stores in Indonesia which can lead to climate change. KPHP Unit XIII Muaro Jambi has the potential as a large enough carbon sink. Given the area that reaches 107,839 hectares and has a type of peat soil that is rich in carbon content and is a conservation area, it is necessary to analyze carbon stocks in this forest area. Estimation of carbon stocks above ground level with non-destructive methods can be carried out using remote sensing technology by connecting the results of measurements in the field. Calculation of carbon stocks in the field using allometric equations. The variables measured in this study were carbon stocks in sapling, pole, and tree stages. The data taken include data on diameter at breast height (DBH). The results showed that number of carbon stocks in 2022 in the sample plot based on the vegetation index (NDVI) class in KPHP Unit XIII Muaro Jambi from field measurements as as follows: for sparse density class, the average carbon is 7.94 tons/ha, and for the medium density class is 35.60 tons/ha. The last NDVI class, for the high density class, the carbon content is 76.03 tons/ha.
