The Qinngua Valley is a valley near Nanortalik, Greenland. The valley contains the only natural forest in Greenland—a thicket consisting mainly of downy birch (Betula pubescens) and gray-leaf willow (Salix glauca), growing up to 7–8 metres (23–26 ft) tall.[1] In total, over 300 species of plants grow in the valley.
