On the representative artificial forests in Japan including Larix kaempferi, Chamaecyparis obtsusa and Cryptomeria japonica the effects of thinning on the carbon fixation and budget of those forests were investigated. As the results obtained thinning of artificial forests, as promoted by the Ministry of forestry and Fisheries, Japan, for the sake of the prevention of glaobal warming, had no apparent negative effects on the carbon budget that was determeined by the substraction of the amounts of carbon release from those of carbon fixation by the relevant forests. that is, little increase in carbon release relative to carbon fixation was observed.
