Aloe dewinteri is assessed as Least Concern. The RAMAS® Red List version 2.0 software package was used to make this assessment.
The species has an extent of occurrence estimated at less than 20,000 km². There are an estimated eight subpopulations known, with population size estimated at fewer than 1,000. The population is currently thought to be stable and although succulent collectors would collect this species, it grows in fairly inaccessible areas, so over harvesting does not seem to be a serious threat at present.
