Abstract: Management of stands in community forests such as agroforestry and stands outside forest areas can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The agroforestry system is a good choices in reducing climate change compared to other options in terrestrial ecosystems. This study aimed at obtaining the most optimal model to estimating the biomass of Cempaka tree (Elmerillia Sp) in community forest stands in Minahasa Regency. The sample was selected through stratified random sampling from two locations. The first location represents the stand of the Cempaka tree community forest, and the second location represents mixed community forest stands. 35 trees were selected for felling, and measurements of wet weight and biomass were carried out based on tree parts. The model to be developed is an allometric regression model of 35 selected trees, and a previously published model. The estimation model obtained is the Cempaka tree biomass estimator model according to tree dimensions such as stems, branches, twigs, leaves, and roots. The results showed that the allometric regression model in the form of logarithmic regression with one independent variable, i.e. diameter of the tree, was quite good in predicting the Cempaka tree biomass. The accuracy of the estimator model for total tree biomass shows R2 of 99.5% with MSE 0.0023 in pure cempaka tree stands. At the second location the coefficient R2 is 98.3% with MSE 0.0038. The predictive results show that the cempaka tree in the community forest stands has a biomass content of 62% – 72%, and the stem part is the largest content.
