The present study was undertaken to  find possible relationship between carbon fixation, leaf canopy, leaf nutrients (N, protein) and its possible relation to wood density but it needs to be confirmed in future study. It is observed that the trees and shrubs with open canopy in general produce wood with high density. The species with carbon fixation, in general, have wood with high density and trees with open leaf canopy and high carbon fixation contribute to wood with high density. Further study is needed to establish the role of these parameters, leaf canopy and carbon fixation on wood density. These tree species are also having high carbon fixation ability. These have the ability to reduce the atmospheric carbon load and reduce carbon pollution.
