Mixed Woodland


An area of both coniferous and deciduous trees. The Mixed Woodland is the defining Acadian Forest Region, where the northern boreal forest meets and mixes with the southern deciduous forest. Appalachian soils and the Maritime climate of eastern Canada provide productive soils and relatively cool climate, creating this unique zone of both hardwoods and softwoods. A high, diverse canopy and well-defined understory of abundant and diverse flora characterize this area.
