Long Range Barrens


A. Soutern Long Range
B. Buchans Plateau - Topsail
C. Northern Long Range

This ecoregion includes the mountainous areas above treeline. Trees only occur as krummholz usually dominated by Black Spruce and Eastern Larch. Small patches of forest may occur in sheltered valleys. The vegetation is dominated by arctic-alpine plants clearly indicating that these barrens, unlike the Maritime Barrens, were never forested.
