Forest Potential Productivity (FPP) of 8 counties in Tianshan was calculated, and the potential timber output of these counties was analyzed with Miami Model and Thornthwaite Memorial Model. Research results showed that annual average output of present stand in Tianshan Forest Region was 3.7 m3/(hm2.a), which reached only 49% of average FPP.
