    Based on apprehending the conception of intensive use of woodland, 12 indices are selected from the aspects of economy, society, ecology and so on according to the principles of scientific systematization, collectible index and system inner linkage. A scientific evaluation index system for woodland intensive use is constructed. Range Standardization Method is adopted in order to eliminate the differences among indices; index weight is calculated by the objective variation coefficient weight method. Physio geographic condition, woodland area and forest resource of Wenhe Operating Zone in Yakeshi City, China are introduced. According to the 2004-2008 relevant statistical data, intensive use level of Wenhe Operating Zone is evaluated. Result shows that the intensive use level of this zone shows a general upward trend with relatively fast increase in a particular year, and slight increase in woodland input every year. From the year 2004 to 2005, intensive level of woodland decreases slightly. From 2005 to 2006, intensive level of woodland rises with slight increase in woodland output. From 2006 to 2007, intensive level of woodland rises rapidly with a substantial upward trend in output. From 2007 to 2008, intensive level of woodland declines sharply. Based on this, related countermeasures are put forward for the intensive use of woodland in Wenhe Operating Zone. Firstly, strengthen the input in production factors of forestry, especially the mechanical input, in order to avoid unnecessary waste. Secondly, scientifically evaluate the development potential, breeding mode and planting program of woodland. Conduct a unified plan for market, and develop wildlife breeding properly. Thirdly, scientifically plan the plantation and guarantee the survival rate; increase the post investment in plantation; scientifically plan the logging quota, and ensure a reasonable output and intensive use of wood.
