This research was designed and implemented with the aim of determining the Effectiveness of Reclamation Operations of watershed management implemented by the forest, rangeland and watershed management organization in increasing the carbon sequestration potential of the land and selecting the optimally implemented patterns. In order to estimate the carbon sequestration of three basins were selected as three sites. Then, samples were weighed and their weighs were identified according to plot in each area and hectare. After that, 10 grams of each sample was transferred to the laboratory and the amount of sequestration was determined per unit area. The Research results show that sample basin of Rimeleh with 2025 kg per ha is the maximum carbon sequestration amount while control sample Abkandari Kohdasht with 122 kg has the minimum carbon sequestration among biological projects. From biological operations. point of view, seeding project with wheat in Rimeleh basic with 1064. 56 kg per had the best performance in terms of carbon sequestration and was ranked highest. According to the results of experiments and analysis of data from the study sites, was determined In Bio-mechanical project of flood spreading Rumshkan, that they have been cultivated Eucalyptus species, Conditions of carbon sequestration are better than the other varieties cultivated in Rimele and Koohdasht and the average rate is 37/31 ton/ha. The amount of soil carbon sequestration from mechanical operations was estimated to be 45. 7, 45. 4, 78. 4, 54. 8 ton / ha Respectively for the three catchment basins of Rimla, Rumshkan and Kohdasht, and the average of the control samples was 26 tons per hectare. Finally acccordind to results of this research Flood spreading Rumshkan project with carbon sequestration of almost 78 tons in each hectar is a successful project from carbon sequestration with a correct management and for mechanical and biological operations of watershed.
