The large increase of residential area in Bogor could cause negative effect such as reduction of urban green open space which will increase CO2 concentration indirectly in the air. It occurred as the result of CO2 emissions that can’t be absorbed by vegetation. Vegetation, especially the trees in green open space of urban residential contributes in reducing the concentration of CO2 through photosynthesis. This purpose of study was to examine and analyze the benefits of trees for carbon storage and sequestration in residential area based on percentage of trees canopy with case study at Bukit Cimanggu City (BCC) and Taman Yasmin, Bogor. The study was held until analysis phase by using CITY green 5.4 with tabular data and spatial data as its final product. CITY green 5.4 analysis was held on three site category sample, site A with 0-5% of trees canopy land cover, site B with 5-10% of trees canopy land cover, and site C with 10-15% of trees canopy land cover. The result of CITYgreen analysis showed that site C with the largest of trees canopy land cover has the greatest number of carbon storage and sequestration. The larger percentage of land covers by tree canopy, the greater capacity of the carbon is stored and absorbed. It is in accordance with the general formula of CITYgreen which carbon capacity is stored and carbon absorption is proportional to the percentage of tree canopy.
