  1. Forests in Canada

  2. Forest Regions of Canada

  3. Dominate Forest covered provinces • The dominate forest covered provinces are Quebec and British Colombia. • B.C is mostly commercial while Quebec has some protected forests This map shows the commercial and non commercial forests of Canada. (for better map see page 310)

  4. Forests of British Colombia • In B.C there are many massive Boreal, montane, and west coast forests. • These forests are rich in various different trees. • Over 60% of B.C forests are commercial. • Reasons for this include the fact that B.C’s forests are aged, making the wood more valuable. However largely the reason is because B.C is so plentiful in forests.

  5. Commercial forest regions of Canada

  6. Boreal • Location: In all provinces and territories following the shield. • Climate: Large temperature range between seasons. Long cold winter. Short hot summer. • Species: Coniferous trees

  7. West Coast • Climate: Lots of precipitation. Moderate temperatures. • Location: Obviously the west coast. • Species: Coniferous trees

  8. Montane • Location: South-East B.C • Climate: moderate climate. Low precipitation levels. • Species: Small coniferous trees.

  9. Mixed • Location: Southern Ontario • Climate: Modified continental • Species: Deciduous and coniferous

  10. Hard and soft Wood • The difference between hard and soft wood in soft wood comes from coniferous trees and hard wood come from deciduous trees.
