Plain Language Summary

A map of forest composition across Canada. Forest areas are identified based on the ten most-common kinds of trees (genera) found in Canada, including: cedar (Thuja), pine (Pinus), hemlock (Tsuga), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga), poplar (Populus), maple (Acer), birch (Betula), fir (Abies), spruce (Picea) and “unknown or other”. A silhouette is shown of one species for each genus, to provide an indication of the shape and size of trees found in different parts of Canada. The map also shows the density of forests across Canada.
