A slow-growing tree, sparsely but widely distributed in remaining areas of primary and slightly disturbed forest, Sindora tonkinensis provides high-quality wood which is highly sought after as a material for luxury furniture. It is threatened by habitat loss. IUCN Red List placed its Conservation status at DD (Data Deficient).[1]


They are found mostly in tropical evergreen forests on Annamite Range that run along the Vietnamese - Cambodia border. In Vietnam, mountainous areas on the north like Quảng Ninh Province and Bắc Giang Province are also the house of the species. Sindora tonkinensis lives where there are fertile topsoil and good natural irrigation, at the height less than 600m from the sea level.
