Hemiboreal and boreal wooded pasture and meadow

Description (English)

Open wooded landscapes of the lowlands, foothills and mountains of the boreal zone, traditionally managed for grazing, hay-making and forest products, mainly by pollarding. Diverse very open canopies of broadleaved and coniferous trees, including veterans sometimes with rich epiphytic cryptogam floras, often with few or no associated shrubs, occur scattered over pasture and meadow vegetation. Long traditions of complex interactions and cultural associations make these landscapes both dynamic and distinctive.
