Info. Boreal forest in Quebec, Canada
Welcome to Canada’s boreal forest, a rich vegetation zone that covers more than half the country. Comprising some 552 million hectares, Canada is home to 28% of the world’s boreal zone. Stretching across Yukon in the north, British Columbia in the west and Newfoundland and Labrador in the east, the boreal forest has a varied mix of atmosphere and terrain. For example, the tundra region in the north is treeless, while the temperate regions in the south are rich with grasslands.
