Switzerland ranks second with Germany as the most densely forested country
in Europe. In the Swiss plateau and lowlands grow many varieties of
plants and trees (palm, magnolia, chestnut, walnut, apple, pear,
cherry). Deciduous forests of beech, maple, and oak are
characteristic below about 1,400 m (about 4,500 ft), and coniferous
forests, primarily of pine and fir, flourish above that height. At
higher elevations, the flora consists of Alpine species such as
edelweiss, anemone, lily, and Swiss pines.
