Did you know that Canada is the third-most forested country in the world by area? It is surpassed only by Russia and Brazil who boast a combined 13,135,936 sq. km. of forest area, according to the CIA World Factbook.

Historically speaking, trees have played a significant role in Canada’s economic development. As a prominent feature of the landscape, it’s no wonder that each province has crowned an official tree.

One tree stands out though: the maple. It was made Canada’s official arboreal emblem in 1996. Of the 10 species that grow naturally in Canada, at least one can be found in every province.
