Forests in Tuchola Forest Biosphere Reserve


Tuchola Forest Biosphere Reserve covers one of the largest forests in Poland, containing mainly Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). The landforms of the area were sculpted by a glacier that retreated at the end of the last glacial age creating characteristically long ribbon lakes. Additionally there are large clusters of inland sand dunes. There are extensive areas of peat bogs formed as a result of the overgrowing of the shallower lakes. 


The most valuable part of the biosphere reserve (core zone) is "Tuchola Forest" National Park and 25 nature reserves. A buffer zone consists: Wdzydze Landscape Park, Zaborski Landscape Park, Tuchola Landscape Park and Wda Landscape Park. (Source: Nature reserves in Poland)
