Pinus dabeshanensis, Dabieshan white pine, is a species of conifer in the Pinaceae family. It is found only in China.[2] Some sources consider it as a synonym of Chinese White Pine (Pinus armandii), which it closely resembles.[3]

The natural range of Pinus dabeshanensis is very restricted although it has been used locally in planting programs; the species occurs in the Dabie Mountains in Anhui and Hubei provinces at elevations between 900 and 1400 m.[4]
