In this paper,cost method,contingent value method,forest resource environmental ef-fect evaluation method and timber demand curve amend method were applied to calculate value of ecological forest in Jinggang Mountain region,Jiangxi of China.The results showed that the e-cological forest's value ratio using cost method(discount rate is10%),contingent value method,forest resource environmental effect evaluation method and timber demand curve amend method is0.4592:0.2185:1.7106:1.Analysis revealed that the timber demand curve amend method,whose annual accounting value is1302yuan/hm2 and can be applied to ecological forest's value compensation,is more reasonable than others;the cost method with an annual accounting value of597.9yuan/hm2 can be considered as the minimum of the value compensation;and contingent value method with an annual value of284.5yuan/hm2 can be only used as the amount of the value compensation for those people benefited from the ecological forest.
