Changbai Mt. forest in the northeastern China is both a very important timber resource of China and one of the most typical and less disturbed temperate mixed evergreen coniferous-deciduous forest in the world.In this paper, NEWCOP. a gap class model of forest growth and succession was proposed to simulate the sensitivity of the forest in Changbai Mountain to elevate CO2. warmer temperature and precipitation change. NEWCOP was tested on long term simulation behaviors and short term fitting ability to field data. About the response of forests of Changbai Mountain to possible climate change, NEWCOP suggested that forest landscape go up within long term and forest biomass comes down within short term because of dieback of forest trees.
