Tsuga chinensis var. forrestii(Downie) Silba

Tsuga forrestii is a species of conifer in the family Pinaceae. It is considered as a variety of Tsuga chinensis (i.e., T. c. var. forrestii) by some. [2] It grows in mixed forests in mountains and valleys of northeast Guizhou, southwest Sichuan, and northwest Yunnan, at altitudes of 2,000–3,000 m (6,600–9,800 ft). [2]

While not a target species, Tsuga forrestii is threatened by clear-cutting of mixed forests. [1]
