Greetings from Serbia ☮
Beautiful shot of the mixed forest Rita. Is it ash with the beech?
Chris, I guess its oak.
The tree just left of center has finely textured bark - similar to ash in the US. Dark trunked tree to the right has the form of oak, but I am unfamiliar with this forest. The beauty of the image is unmistakable though :)
Due to the bark it might be ash. But the European ash is either to be found on moist, eutrophic sites or on dry, warm calcite sites. The other vegetation isn't in accordance to both of these sites. But beech oak mixed forests are to be found often (even though this mix wouldn't appear by nature) Therefore I believe its oak.
Yesn cbaisan, the tree with the textured bark is oak, "Eiche" and the big one right a beech (Buche). It is a mixed forest with very old oaks and beeches and at spring you can find a lot of lily of the valleys here.
Danke, boarischa krautmo!
