The sub-Arctic forest Canada
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The sub-Arctic forest

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.
