Pine–cypress forest is a type of mixed conifer woodland in which at least one species of pine and one species of cypress are present. Such forests are noted in several parts of North America including Florida[1] and California.

California occurrences[edit]

California occurrences of pine–cypress forest are typically along Pacific coastal headlands.[2] Understory species in these California pine–cypress forests include salal and western poison oak.[3]

Florida conferences[edit]

Many of the Florida occurrences of pine–cypress forest are in swampy areas such as the Everglades.[1]
