Atlantic Canada is comprised of the four provinces located on the Atlantic Coast - New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. In the Atlantic Maritime ecozone, forests make up 90 percent of the total land cover. Unlike other regions, the Atlantic Maritime has a large proportion of privately owned forestland, totaling 90 percent in Prince Edward Island, 75 percent in Nova Scotia, and 50 percent in New Brunswick.
Atlantic Canada vegetation varies from forests of Black and White Spruce and Balsam Fir to shrublands and meadows. The major disrupters of these forests are from paper and pulp production, as the demand has only increased. Planting trees in Atlantic Canada will greatly impact CO2 emissions and have a positive impact on biodiversity in these areas.
