Much of France's forests were cleared many centuries ago for agriculture and other human needs. France is still home to many species of plants. Plant life is dependent on climate, so France's flora ranges from small grasses and wildflowers in the mountainous alpine regions to the fir, spruce and mountain pine trees in the coniferous forests, and the oak, beech and chestnut trees of the lower-elevation deciduous forests. Smaller plants and flowers, like gorse, heather, broom and bracken, dot the meadows and grazing fields.
