range. It is classified as Vulnerable in some parts of its range but subpopulations in the Grand Canyon National Park and upper Colorado river have remained stable and the species is projected to have the largest range extensions among deciduous trees in N. America due to projected climates of the 21st century. The plant is classified as 'Least Concern' in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species(2014)[
