Abies durangensis has an extensive distribution (extent of occurrence is >150,000 kmÂ²) and although scattered, can be abundant in some localities. Its relatively remote and inaccessible habitat and the fact that it is not a major timber tree appear to indicate that it is Least Concern, although there is no information to indicate if the taxon is or has declined. The more limited variety coahuilensis is assessed as Vulnerable, but this does not influence the status of the entire species. The typical variety would also be listed as Least Concern.
Abies durangensis is a species of conifer in the Pinaceae family. It was described botanically by Maximino Martínez in 1942 and is found only in Mexico (Durango, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Jalisco and Sinaloa).
