Stem-analysis and timber segregation observation were conducted to investigate the effects of different site conditions on the height, ground diameter, volume and fiber morphology of Fraxinus velutina. The results showed that the growth characteristics were significant difference on the different site conditions. Fraxinus velutina grew better on the site of sufficient water and fertilizer and good soil texture. The growth characteristics were medium,but it was suitable for furniture and fiberboard processing industry.
