Kouta, NTS-

Along with a friend I own some land and cabins at about the same latitude as Quetico but farther east in Ontario, between Algonquin PP and Georgian Bay. We have all the conifer species you mentioned plus eastern hemlock. The mot common broadleaves are canoe birch, quaking aspen, bigtooth aspen. red maple, sugar maple, and runty red oaks. It's curious that some areas look entirely boreal, with black and white spruce, tamarack, balsam fir and jack pine, while other areas are much richer, with maples and red oak, white and red pine, and even beech and basswood.
