The needle-leaved trees are mostly spruces, pines, and firs (all evergreen), with some (deciduous) larches mixed in especially in the Alps and Central Europe. The broad-leaved trees (all deciduous) are more varied: ashes, beeches, hornbeams, oaks, and poplar trees are widespread in most of Europe, alders in Eastern Europe, and chestnuts in Southern Europe.
