Abstract: Green open space is one of the efforts in reducing CO2 emissions of urban areas. Vegetation tree in a public green open space serves as an absorber of CO2 in the form of stored carbon. It made the environmental balance. The purpose of this study is to determine the carbon stocks in public green open space of Pekanbaru. Data obtained with the survey and non-destructive method, and then analyzed using allometric equations. The results showed that the estimated reserves of carbon in Pekanbaru city public green spaces are 202 tons/Ha. It can be concluded that the carbon stocks in the city of Pekanbaru classified as moderate and included in range of carbon stocks contained in tropical forests generally so that it helps to actualize the environmental balance.
