city, north-central Heilongjiang (Heilungkiang) sheng (province), far northeastern China. It is situated in the densely forested area of the Xiao Hinggan (Lesser Khingan) Range (Xiao Hinggan Range), at the confluence of the Yichun River (from which the city takes its name) and the Tangwang River, a tributary of the Sungari (Songhua) River (Sungari River).

      Until 1949 Yichun was a minor market town under Tangyuan county. Since 1949 it has grown at an astonishing rate as a major centre of the lumber industry. It was established as a county in 1952 and as a city in 1957; it reverted to county in 1964 and was again restored to city status in 1979. Because of Yichun's location in the mountains among virgin forests, the city's population initially had to be supported by importing foodstuffs; only in the late 1950s did local agriculture begin to develop. Almost the entire economic output of the city consists of timber and timber products. Railways link Yichun with Harbin, the provincial capital, and with Jiamusi to the southeast. Pop. (2002 est.) 800,649.
