The present study aims to estimate the above-ground biomass (AGB), belowground biomass (BGB) and carbon sequestration of tree species (1 ha plot) in four sacred groves in Sivagangai District of Tamil Nadu, India. Linear allometric regression equation was followed to estimate the AGB of tree species. BGB and carbon content sequestered in trees were estimated by conversion factors. Aboveground biomass of the sacred groves were ranged 56.2 mt/ha to 93.4 mt/ha. Belowground biomass estimation in the present study was ranged between 14.6 mt/ha and 24.3 mt/ha. Carbon accumulation in these sacred groves were 35.4 mt/ha to 58.86 mt/ha in trees. Even though study site III have low density which have sequestered more carbon content due to larger trees. The present study reveals that these sacred groves are not only restores the biodiversity in a dry environment, it also mitigates carbon and play a major role in the carbon cycling
