An enormous and unbroken forest of pines, hemlocks and spruce.
In the Mountain Region at the bases of the mountains are oaks, hickories, chestnuts and white poplars: above these are hemlocks, beeches, birches, elms, ashes, maples and limes; and still higher up are spruce, white pine and balsam; and all but a comparatively few of the higher mountains are forest-clad to their summits.
Far the most abundant are coast and Alpine hemlocks and the tide-land or Sitka spruce.
