This paper gives an indepth analysis of the types,quantity and quality and current situation of exploitation and production of forest resources of Ngari prefecture in Tibet.It also exlores the existing problems in forestry production such as single resources structure,poor in re-served resources,backward management in production;uneven distribution of forest resources;prominent differentiation in horizontal and vertical distribution;and vast expanse of wasteland and barren mountains resources suitable for forestry resulting in difficulties in afforestation and serious damage of eco-environment.On the basis of the above discussions,the following counter-measures are identified as:(a)to perfect forestry institutional and management system and strengthen forest resources management;(b)to economize fuel forest and protect eco-environment;(c)to put into effect forestland contract system and energetically develop forestry;and(d)to in-crease scientific and technical input ,promote forestry with science and technology and take the road towards sustainable forestry development.
