Two rare pine species with scientific names of Tsuga chinensis (Franch.) Pritz. ex Diels and Pseudotsuga sinensis Dode have been found in Thai Phin Tung commune in Dong Van district of northern mountainous Ha Giang province.

 

These pine species, which have been listed as the most endangered plants in Vietnam and the world’s Red Books, were discovered by Vietnamese and foreign biologists on mountains 1,300-1,700m above sea level.

 

They said Thai Phin Tung commune is home to eight rare plant species, including seven pine species - equal to 21 percent of the country’s total. 

According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), Vietnam is one of the 10 “hottest” places in the world in preserving these pine species.
