Pietrosul mountain lies in the northern part of the Rodna mountains. Four vegetation belts occur: Fagus forest up to 1,000 m; Abies forest up to 1,700 m; dwarf Pinus shrubs at the treeline; and alpine grasslands and rocky areas above that.
This is an important site for species characteristic of upland deciduous forests, montane conifer forests and open, rocky alpine habitats.
