In the middle ten days of October, we had a campus tour on identifying trees. A showy tree with yellowy-green little oval leaves and clusters of red berries drew our attention. It was European mountain ash (Sorbus aucuparia L.) A thought occurred in our mind: Does our home country China have this gorgeous tree? If not, can we transplant this tree into China? Although after our search, this idea was interrupted by a fact that rowan distribute wildly in China(中国科学院植物研究, 1985), we still do not wish to abandon the research and study on this attractive tree. Therefore, we choose Heilongjiang, a northern-east province in China, which has akin latitudes with Alberta (Heihe: 51°N; Edmonton: 53°N) to compare on which has the optimum environment condition for the growth of European mountain ash. This paper will focus on the comparison of the temperature, soil, precipitation, and light conditions between Alberta and North China and finally draw a conclusion on the preferable province for European mountain ash.
