Abstract: This report assesses two methods for predicting above-ground carbon storage of plantations in the low-medium rainfall areas of New South Wales (NSW), namely the Carbon Sequestration Predictor and the National Carbon Accounting Toolbox. It is a technical companion document to the RIRDC report 'Carbon trading and Catchment Management Authorities: Realising the revenue potential of environmental plantings under the New South Wales carbon market.' The two companion documents report results of a project undertaken to establish the feasibility of including environmental plantings in the NSW Greenhouse Gas Abatement Scheme (GGAS) carbon market, with a view to determining whether Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs) could become accredited as carbon pool managers and generate additional revenue to support their revegetation programs.
