Abstract: A low-elevation primary mixed forest stand with old-growth trees of Pinus dalatensis, a conservationally important conifer species of Vietnam, was studied during field documentation of conifers of the region conducted for the Dendrological Atlas Project. The site was visited following recent reports of a new occurrence of this species in Gia Lai province. Following a preliminary exploration in January 2004 in cooperation with the Department of Botany, Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (Hanoi) and the Department of Ecology, Da Lat University (Lam Dong) field documentation was conducted in the Dak Doa district. The forest stand with mature trees of P. dalatensis at 1,070-1,100 m is among the lowest occurrences of the species. The survey included observations on the habitat conditions, documenting the major associated species for our herbaria, and examination of the morphology of the pine specimens.
