In the paper, the biomass and productivity of Cinnamomum camphora plantation are studied. The results show that the estimated biomass of Cinnamomum camphora plantation is 111.08 t·hm -2 ; the productivity is 6.17 t·hm -2 a -1 .The distributing sequence of the biomass of the plantation ecosystem is that tree stratum litterundergrowthherb. The total biomass of tree layer is 91.97% t·hm -2 ; its net productivity is 5.11 t·hm -2 a -1 . The distributing sequence of the organic biomass of the tree is that trunkbranchrootbarkleaf. Regarding the production structure, the biomass of trunks under the height of 5 m accounts to 80% of the total; the biomass of branches between 4 m and 11 m accounts to 86% of the total; the biomass of leaves between 8 m and 12 m accounts to 78% of the total; and the biomass of roots below the ground level of 40 cm accounts to 84.74%. The present stage structure of the community is irrational. The structure of productivity should be regulated so as to improve the integrate effects of the community.
