Deciduous trees

Index card


From the banks of the river Freser to approximately 1200 m, the deciduous forest has its dominion. Alders next to the water are replaced by hazelnuts, gatsaules, birches, aspens, ash trees and oaks, as we gain height and the humidity and depth of the soil vary. The ash forms small woods (freixenedes) along with the oak grove, below the red pine grove. In autumn, the colorations of these trees offer a high landscape value in the valley.
