Quercus - Fraxinus - Carpinus betulus woodland on eutrophic and mesotrophic soils

English name: Oak - ash - hornbeam woodland on eutrophic and mesotrophic soils

Description (English)

Atlantic, medio-European and eastern European forests dominated by Quercus robur or Quercus petraea, on eutrophic or mesotrophic soils, with usually ample and species-rich herb and shrub layers. Carpinus betulus is generally present. They occur under climates too dry or on soils too wet or too dry for beech or as a result of forestry practices favouring oaks.
