The sub-Arctic forest, where the vegetation is sparse and the growth of trees slow, connects the northern tundra with the boreal forest. It occupies a large part of the territory to the Saint Lawrence River. This forested part essentially consists of coniferous trees, such as the balsam fir, the jack pine and the tamarack.
This forest is home to many reindeer, known as caribous, which can often been spotted close to watering holes at dawn.© anikasalsera - 123RF
