With the continuous progress of human society, global warming has gradually become a global environmental problem. The main cause of global warming is the greenhouse effect, i.e., rising carbon concentration. Forests and related forest products play an important role in alleviating the greenhouse effect and realizing carbon sequestration. In order to further explore the impact of forest management plan on its carbon sequestration capacity, this paper took pinus koraiensis and fir of the Lesser Khingan Mountains as examples, and implemented the cutting and non-cutting plans respectively with 160 years as a cycle, and calculated its carbon sequestration by the method of Biomass Conversion Factor. The results showed that the carbon storage capacity of cutting in one cycle is 22,290 t more than that of non-cutting, and the carbon sequestration capacity of pinus koraiensis and fir is 104,715 t and 86,757 t respectively under the cutting plan. This paper can provide reference for balancing the relationship among forest economic value, biodiversity and carbon sink storage and optimizing forest management plan.
