Baltic Mixed Forests (4)

The Baltic mixed forests consist of temperate broadleaf and mixed forests in northwestern continental Europe across a region stretching from Denmark eastward across northern Germany (to the north of the Elbe River), and in Poland, north of the Oder River. This ecoregion encompasses many different habitats. The dominant vegetation type is submontane beech and mixed beech forest. The other trees which may be present include oak, ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and  sycamore maple (Acer pseudoplatanus)
