To increase the yield of secondary metabolites, Arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi were used to improve cyclocarya paliurus. The experiment measured growth indicators, biomass, mineral nutrients, etc. The results showed that after inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi the nitrogen content in the leaves of the experimental group was 27.87 mg/g, K content was 7.48 mg/g, Ca content was 26.63 mg/g, and Mg content was 2.82 mg/g. Compared with the control group (Cg), mycorrhizal fungi can promote the absorption of mineral nutrients by C. paliurus seedlings. A. mycorrhizal fungi had a certain influence on the proportion of root, stem, leaf, and total biomass of C. paliurus seedlings, and their biomass distribution in various parts was relatively balanced. A. mycorrhizal fungi can significantly increase the biomass of willow seedlings’ stems and significantly increase their proportion in the total biomass (p < 0.05). After mycorrhizal inoculation, the secondary metabolic yields of quinic acid, quercetin, and kaempferol in C. paliurus leaves were 0.87 mg/g, 0.32 mg/g, and 0.65 mg/g, respectively, higher than those in the Cg. It is concluded that the use of A. mycorrhizal to improve the survival rate of medicinal materials and ensure the quality of medicinal materials is a new idea for the industrial production of C. paliurus.
