The potentials of forest carbon sinks and employment creation from afforestation in China are described in the paper. The analysis indicated that there were huge potentials in both creating carbon sinks and employment from afforestation in China. From 2009 to 2020, 2021 to 2050, and 2009 to 2050, forest carbon storage are estimated to be 2.07, 2.34 and 4.41 billion tons of carbon and the value of these forest carbons are estimated to be 22.8, 25.8 and 48.6 billion US Dollars, respectively. These afforestation initiatives are estimated to create 26.36 million,29.82 million and 56.18 million short-term jobs, 169 767, 192 102 and 361 869 long-term jobs, respectively.
