Characterising tree types
|Forest is characterised by the dominant tree types, which may be mixtures of species within the categories broadleaved deciduous; mixed broadleaved and coniferous; broadleaved evergreen; and coniferous. Note that broadleaved woodland is defined as wooded land on which more than 75% of the tree crown cover consists of broadleaved species and that coniferous woodland is defined as wooded land on which more than 75% of the tree crown cover consists of coniferous species (based on FAO definition). Mixed woodland is defined as wooded land on which neither coniferous, nor broadleaved species account for more than 75% of the crown cover.|
