This paper reports the evaluation and planning of greenspace in the highlands region of Surabaya. Evaluation was conducted by taking primary data related to the number of vehicles with traffic counting method and secondary data in the form of population, vegetation type, and pattern of greenspace vegetation planting. The calculation of the adequacy of greenspace was done by calculating the volume of carbon dioxide emissions by humans and vehicles. The calculation was then multiplied by the emission factor. This helped in calculating the absorption capacity of total carbon dioxide from the existing greenspace vegetation. The results showed that the existing vegetation could be preserved and enriched with the addition of vegetation species to absorb carbon dioxide gas emissions and in accordance with the existing laws and regulations.
