Although little is known about Magnolia albosericea there are thought to be very few mature individuals (less than 1,000), across its range of evergreen broadleaved forests of southern China and northern Viet Nam. It is only known to occur in three to five locations, where land use change is a plausible threat. Therefore, it is assessed as Vulnerable.
Although little population information is available for Magnolia albosericea, there are thought to be very few or less than 1,000 individuals. Population Trend
No direct threats are known, but habitat loss and land conversion for urbanisation are impacting on the remaining populations.
There are no known conservation actions for Magnolia albosericea and it is absent from ex situ collections, although it has apparently been cultivated in South China Botanical Garden (Shi et al. 2000). It is not known whether this species occurs in any nature reserves or other form of protected area.
