There are about twenty indigenous tree species growing in Finland, the most common ones being pine, spruce  and birch ). Usually two or three tree species dominate a forest.

Naturally pure pine stands are found in rocky terrain, on top of arid eskers and on pine swamps. Natural spruce stands are found on richer soil. Birch is commonly found as an admixture, but it can occasionally form pure birch stands.
