Figure 1.4 - Main tree species

previous | next  
Figures 1.4a and 1.4b are pie charts illustrating the main tree species in coniferous (Figure 1.4a) and broadleaved (Figure 1.4b) woodland in Great Britain. The charts indicate that coniferous woodland in Great Britain is dominated by Sitka spruce and (to a lesser extent) Scots pine, together accounting for around two thirds of the coniferous area. For broadleaved species, more variety is evident, with Birch, Oak, Ash and Sycamore together accounting for just over one half of the broadleaved area.
