If data is available, this is where you find Ecoregion Descriptions, Plant Communities of that ecoregion, and Species Lists/Recommendations for both. If you know the community types at your project site, use community recommendations as the species will be more appropriate and more specifically geared to your site.
If species recommendations are not available for your project area, try searching seed for sale in your ecoregion.
Laurentian Plains and Hills Ecoregion
This mostly forested region, with dense concentrations of continental glacial lakes, is less rugged than the Northeastern Highlands (58) to the west and considerably less populated than the Ecoregion 59 to the south. Vegetation here is mostly spruce-fir with some patches of maple, beech, and birch, and the soils are predominantly Spodosols. By contrast, the forests in the Northeastern Coastal Zone (59) to the south are mostly white, red, and jack pine and oak-hickory, and the soils are generally Inceptisols and Entisols.
