Pseudotsuga sinensis (Chinese Douglas-fir; in Chinese 黃杉, pinyin romanization: húang shān) is a species of conifer in the Pinaceae family. It is a tree up to 50 metres tall.[2] It is found in China (in Anhui, Fujian, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, and Zhejiang provinces) and Taiwan[1] as well as in northernmost parts of Vietnam.[3]
The timber is used for construction, bridge building, furniture, and wood fiber.[2][4]
Pseudotsuga sinensis var. wilsoniana, Taiwan Douglas-fir, is sometimes treated as its own species, Pseudotsuga wilsoniana. This variety is geographically isolated (being restricted to Taiwan) but is not markedly distinct morphologically from var. sinensis of China.[4]
