Sikkim is a land-locked state in the North-east of India. It is located in the ecological hotspot of lower Himalayas. Sikkim exhibits a diverse range of flora and fauna. Owing to its attitudinal gradation, the state has a wide variety of plants, from tropical to temperate to alpine and tundra, and is perhaps one of the few regions to exhibit such a diversity within such a small area. Nearly 81% of the area of Sikkim comes under the administration of its forest department. The flora of Sikkim include the rhododendron, the state tree, with a wide range of species occurring from subtropical to alpine regions. This checklist gives a list of trees used as fodder for livestock in Sikkim.
