Hainan Island is one of the main natural rubber producing areas in China. The chilling and wind disasters are the main meteorological disasters of Hainan natural rubber, so it is important to carry out the meteorological disaster risk zoning of rubber plantation, which will effectively improve the disasters prevention ability of rubber. According to the meteorological data during 1971-2010 and Hainan rubber planting data during 1988-2012 and rubber distribution information extracted from TM remote sensing images, four factors (hazard of disaster inducing factors, exposure of disaster pregnant environment, disaster-affected body, capacity for disaster prevention and reduction) were chosen to carry out the chilling and wind disasters risk assessment of rubber plantation based on formation mechanism of risk. And the comprehensive risk assessmaent result of the main meteorological disasters of natural rubber in Hainan Island was obtained. The results show that: higher risk and high risk areas were in west of Qionghai, Qiongzhong, west of Wanning, Wuzhishan, Sanya etc, medium risk areas were in most areas of Tunchang, Chengmai, Qionghai, Baoting, Baisha, Ledong etc, low risk areas and lower risk areas were mainly in the Changjiang, Dongfang, Danzhou, Haikou etc.
