One response to “Pseudotsuga sinensis var. sinensis”

    Thanks for posting a picture of this rare tree. It’s interesting that while P. menziesii is such a dominant, ubiquitous, and familair tree, that the other members of the genus are rare and relatively unknown. For those interested in the genus Pseudotsuga in North America, there is another species: P. macrocarpa is found on chaparral slopes, canyon bottoms, and mixed-conifer forests in southern California, but its range doesn’t quite overlap with its more well-known cousin. Ron Lanner provides an excellent description of this species in his book “Conifers of California.”
