Willow riparian forests


This softwood floodplain forest type occurs along large lowland rivers. It is dominated open willow and willow-poplar riparian forests dominated by the arborescent species Salix alba. This vegetation type develop also as stages of secondary succession on abandoned flooded meadows and in other wet habitats in the floodplains. The stands were historically affected by regular spring floods. They have become rare after streamflow started to be regulated in the end of 19th and first half of the 20th century.
