Location: Hant's Harbour
The forests of Newfoundland and Labrador form the most eastern
part of the Boreal Forest Region of North America. The forests are
relatively small, primarily coniferous trees intermixed with
hardwoods. Due to cool, moist climates, nutrient cycling is
slow and poorly drained soils have developed. There are twenty-one
tree species in Newfoundland and Labrador. The most common
species found in Newfoundland is the Balsam Fir, a Christmas Tree favorite.
