Pinus pinea forests

Description (English)

Mediterranean forests and old naturalised plantations of Pinus pinea not on coastal dunes (otherwise see unit B1.71 of EUNIS 2012). Ancient introductions in many areas often makes the distinction between spontaneous forests and long-established formations of artificial origin difficult. These are thus included, while recent, obviously artificial groves are not.
