This is the most resistant species to Hemlock
adelgid. It seems well adapted to the upper Southeast and is quite attractive. Ultimately it is large dominant tree unlike U.S.
hemlocks. In China the giant panda prefers to nest in old trees of this species. The only disadvantage that it is very
hard to find.
