Threats

  • The major threat facing Torreya taxifolia is disease
  • Loss of habitat by damming of suitable ravine habitat for recreational impoundments, however, is a potential
  • The very limited range and small size of populations of this species increase the possibility of loss of all or a significant portion of the species as a result of any accidental or natural catastrophe

Conservation Status
