Explanation:
I agree with Jon, I tried the google
and found the following phrase:
Fugtig regnskov. Langs vandløb og søer i lavlandet, hvor jorden er fugtig, vokser den tætte regnskov. Khair (Acacia catechu), shisham (Dalbergia sissoo) og simal (Bombax ceiba) er karaktertræerne.

I wish you all the best !

Greetings from Tone
