Tsuga chinensis var. forrestii (Downie) Silba
Tsuga forrestii is a species of conifer in the Pinaceae family. It is considered as a variety of Tsuga chinensis (i.e., T. c. var. forrestii) by some. 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).
While not a target species, Tsuga forrestii is threatened by clear-cutting of mixed forests.
