Acadian Forest


The Acadian Forest covers parts of Canada’s Maritime Provinces: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.1 It encompasses many different trees ranging from spruce and fir varieties to hardwoods such as birch and maple.2 The last of those is, of course, the inspiration for the maple leaf depicted on the Canadian flag.
