The region is of particular importance in Canada because it provides the country with its most unique and richest abundance of plant and animal life.
Trees such as various species of Ash, Birch, Chestnut, Hickory, Oak and Walnut are found here. And animals from the common Raccoon to the relatively rare Southern Flying Squirrel can also be seen.
Of concern, is that while less than one percent of Canada's land mass is occupied by this natural habitat, the same area is also home to one-quarter of the country's population.
