The forests of Karelia and the Karelian Isthmus were classified by field guide of European Russia forest types, which was developed by L. B. Zaugolnova and V.B Martynenko. The studied forests were classified into five main sections: lichenous, green moss, sphagnous, grass and grass-marsh. The most widely represented are the green moss and sphagnous sections. They include five groups of forest types. The lichen section is the least diverse: it contains only two groups of forest types. In each group of forest types identified forest types. The most common types of forest are pine and blueberry-green moss forests.

Key words: forest classification, determinant of forest types in European Russia, Karelia, Karelian Isthmus, northern taiga, middle taiga.
