There has been over 30% tree cover loss within its range in the period from 2000 - 2016, causing a suspected population decline which is likely to be greater if calculated over three generation lengths (60-150 years). The plant is classified as 'Endangered' in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species(2019)[
