Valuation of ecosystem services through organic carbon distribution and cycling in the Pinus densiflora forest at Mt. Worak National Park were investigated from January 2013 through December 2013. The amount of carbon allocated to above and below ground biomass was 32.17 and 8.04 ton C . Amount of organic carbon in litter layer was 5.55 ton C . Amount of organic carbon within 50cm soil depth was 58.62 ton C 50cm-. Total amount of organic carbon in this Pinus densiflora forest was estimated to 104.38 ton C . The estimated amount of won in this Pinus densiflora forest in terms of total organic carbon was about 10.44 million won . The amount of carbon evolved through soil respiration was 4.44 ton C . The amount of carbon evolved through microbial respiration and root respiration was 2.18 and 2.27 ton C , respectively. The amount of organic carbon absorbed from the atmosphere of this Pinus densiflora forest was 0.44 ton C when estimated from the difference between net primary production and microbial respiration. This amount will come to about 44,000 won in Korean currency.
