Did you know…. why there are (relatively) so few species of tree in Europe when compared to North America?
Why are there so few varieties of trees in Europe?
Well - European mountains go the wrong way… during an ice age, when ice sheets spread southwards, if the mountain ranges mainly run North/South then it is easier for trees to seed themselves away from the oncoming ice. In North America the giant ranges run North/South unlike Europe where most mountain ranges run roughly East/West and so trees in Europe were caught (literally) between a rock and a hard place.
