Fine root (<2 mm) biomass and mineral soil organic carbon (C) stocks across a chronosequence of spruce (Picea C (SOC) stock were estimated from soil cores. Tree biomass asperata) plantations established on cutovers and explored the was quantified using allometric equations based on diameter turning point after which the increase in biomass C slowed or at breast height (DBH) and height (H). biomass C decreased for guiding forest management. Results and discussion Plant biomass C stocks in spruce plan- Materials and methods We assessed above- and belowground tations rapidly increased from 12 to 20 years at a rate of −1 −1 plant biomass stocks at 11 sites in three regions, representing 7.8 Mg
