Forests of Quercus robur of the northern nemoral zone and of enclaves in the southern boreal zone of Eastern Europe, with Tilia cordata and no Carpinus betulus. They are characteristic of the Baltic States, eastern Belarus, the Ukraine and Russia, east to the Volga, outside of the range of Carpinus betulus. They also occur within the geographical range of hornbeam on soils unfavourable to its growth. Quercus robur and Tilia cordata are accompanied by Acer platanoides, Populus tremula, Picea abies, Corylus avellana, Sorbus aucuparia, Euonymus europaeus, Daphne mezereum, Galium odoratum, Anemone nemorosa and boreal herbs.
