Plant life

In large portions of the park with older pine forest, the land supports a limited number of species. Lingonberries, crowberries and bilberries are common plants, of course.

On dead pine and spruce wood, unusual fungi and lichens sometimes are found. Parasite cup lichen is one such unusual species growing on old pinewood. Here and there among the coniferous trees, you can find pussy willows.

On the pussy willows, tree lungwort and the Haploporus odorus fungus sometimes occur. The Björnlandet plant that probably is most widely known is the Lapland buttercup. It is very rare but can be found in some untouched marshy spruce forests in the park. Reindeer lichen and Iceland moss grow in abundance on boulders and rocks.
