The dots may be white (scattered trees) or green (scattered bushes / thickets). Prominent individual trees may be added using symbol Prominent large tree (417). If yellow coloured areas become dominant, a screen (75% instead of full yellow) may be used.

Minimum area: 2 mm x 2 mm (footprint 30 m x 30 m). Smaller areas must either be left out, exaggerated or shown using symbol Open land (401).

The symbol is orientated to north.

Colour: yellow (or yellow 75%) with holes of white or green 60%.
