I'm just having too much fun with the Tourist View of Sweden (see the two previous posts) to quite let go of it yet. So I thought that before I go on to other things, I'll finish off this mini-series with some pictures to show there is actually some variation even in the tree views.
I do have some sympathy with the writers of that Travel Guide, though, because there really is A LOT of just this along some roads... Spruce and fir, and nothing else in sight, for miles and miles and miles... Especially when you go up north; but also in some areas further south.
However, we also do have decidious forests (dropping their leaves over the winter):
Beech forests are more common in the south.
Birch forests you can find both in the south and far up in the north.
Mixed kinds of forest vegetation.
I do not go travelling very far or wide any more, and the pictures in these three posts are all from the area around where I live, in the province of Västergötland. (Link to Wikipedia article.)
