Carolinian forest, near Port Rowan, Ontario

Carolinian forest, near Port Rowan, Ontario

The northwestern shore of Lake Erie is the southern-most part of Canada, at around 42 degrees latitude. The southerly latitude and the moderating effect of the large and shallow lake Erie contributes to a climate unlike any other in Canada. Indeed the trees that grow here are more similar to the Carolinas in the U.S., giving name to this vegetation as the Carolinian forest. It is characterized by very tall deciduous trees.
