Great Lakes–St Lawrence Forests

The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forests are the second in size behind the boreal forests and consist mainly of temperate broadleaf and mixed forests. The forests are located in an area that stretched from the northern shores of Lake Superior to the Gaspe Peninsula. The main species of trees found in this forest include the eastern white pine, eastern hemlock, the red pine, and the yellow birch. Some species of maples (sugar and red), as well as basswood, are also found in the forests. (source: World Atlas)
