Abstract: This research aims to estimate above-ground carbon sequestration of orchards by using the data collected from Landsat 8 OLI. Regression equations are applied to study the relationship between the amount of above-ground carbon sequestration and vegetation indices from Landsat 8 OLI, in which the data was collected in 2015 in 3 methods: 1) Difference Vegetation Index (DVI), 2) Green Vegetation Index (GVI), and 3) Simple Ratio (SR). The results are as follows: 1) By DVI method, it results in the equation y = 0.3184e0.0482x and the coefficient of determination R² = 0.8457. The amount of above-ground sequestration’s calculation result is 213.176 tons per rai. 2) By GVI method, it results in the equation y = 0.2619e0.0489x and the coefficient of determination R²=0.8763. The amount of above-ground sequestration’s calculation result is 220.510 tons per rai. 3) By SR method, it results in the equation y = 0.8900e0.0469x and the coefficient of determination R² = 0.7748. The amount of above-ground sequestration’s calculation result is 234.229 tons per rai.
