Vegetation of the Canadian Shield

The vegetation of the Canadian Shield is very interesting. Although the Canadian Shield is right in the middle or heart of Canada, its vegetation is quite different from the rest of Canada. Mainly the Canadian Shield is covered in trees, deciduous and coniferous. The vast forests consist of mainly Birch, Aspen, Tamarack, Spruce, Willow, Hemlock and Pine trees. The Canadian Shield region is known worldwide for its beautiful falls, where you can find leaves of any colour scattered about. Some more of the plants and trees that grow are the Jack Pine, Marsh reed grass, Swamp Laurel, Black Spruce and Bearburry. The forests are mainly Boreal or Taiga which means they are distinguished by long cold winters and short hot summers. Boreal forests are what separate the Arctic Tundra from the Canadian Shield. Also for a point of interest some of the animals that live in the region are the Black Bear, Porcupine, Moose, Dear, Great Horned Owl, and the Fox.
