Rounded Global Status Rank: G5 - Secure
Reasons: This widespread Pacific Northwest species is generally scattered throughout its range, although it is abundant in some areas, such as west of the continental divide in Montana. Clearcutting is occurring in many parts of its range, but this species tends to respond positively to canopy opening, which may balance or outweigh other potential types of habitat degradation from clearcuts. This species has traditionally been harvested from the wild for use in the floral industry and making baskets for domestic and international markets, and overharvest for these markets is a local threat in some areas; however, this species is sufficiently widespread that this threat is not expected to lead to regional or rangewide decline.
