In this study Ranwa made an attempt to explore ecological conservation values of such areas in urban ecosystem. The study constituted an assessment of standing biomass, carbon sequestration potential of tree flora in and around Pune City, with inventories on indigenous and exotic tree species. Such green areas or pockets act as Hot Spot in urban biodiversity (Kulkarni et al., 2001). The role of such areas in urban ecosystem needs to be addressed. Therefore, to evaluate the status of such green pockets, the present study was undertaken on vegetation in fringe forest pockets and green areas in and around Pune city.
