Types, specific to RME, most often represent steppe, meadow-steppe, and nemoral groups.
The southernmost part of Sweden is nemoral forest (broadleaf forest); north of this region is the boreo-nemoral forest region (mixed deciduous and coniferous forest).
The first group is represented by nemoral spruces (Piceeto- Aegopodioso- Mercurialiosa, Caricosa pilosae-Aegopodiosa, Oxalidoso-Nemorosa Struthiopteridosa, Urticosa), the second is represented by Piceetocalamagrostidosa, and Piceeto- Saxatile-Rubosa mainly with pine and limetrees.
The counties cover all Swedish vegetation types including alpine, boreal, boreonemoral, and nemoral zones.
