Tree peony (Paeonia suffruticosa Andr.) is one of unique biological resources which originated from China. Tree peony has been cultivated for over 2 000 years in China, which has gone through three developmental stages including the medicinal, the ornamental and the comprehensive utilization periods. Tree peony has an important value in development and utilization because of its cultivation in large area, the outstanding ecological effect, the high yield of seeds and the high quality of seed oil. In this paper, the importance of developing woody oil is summarized in China; the prospects and the key technology of developing oil tree peony are analyzed. Proposal that oil tree peony should be developed under a new woody oil development at the national level is put forward, and the main problems of oil tree peony development is pointed out, and the three kinds of corresponding countermeasures from oil tree peony planting and processing and ecology in China are proposed.
