THAT'S WORTH A VISIT!
The forest in Cerdanya: In Cerdanya, the forest is made up of deciduous trees and evergreen trees (conifers, except larch). The first one forms the characteristic bocage of the cerdan plateau and the riparian forests. The fields are surrounded by poplars cut short "in tadpole". There are also Willows, Alders and Ashes. Some birch forests also exist. As you climb higher and higher, the hardwoods give way to the natural forest of Hooked Pines, which reign supreme up to 2,700 metres. Scots pine and spruce are coniferous trees present in the rich cerdan botanical inventory.
