Eastern forest-boreal transition

WWF Abstract

The Eastern Forest -- Boreal Transition ecoregion includes a mixture of forests supporting a diversity of species from balsam fir to black ash and from wood ducks to moose. Among these forests are the most widespread old-growth red and white pine stands remaining in the world. One of the largest remaining areas of old-growth forest in the northeastern United States, Five Ponds Wilderness, is found in this ecoregion. Old-growth forests are critically important wildlife habitat, with multiple layers of trees of different sizes providing habitat for countless birds, mammals, and insects.
