Forestry and Agrifoods
This undulating, bedrock controlled landscape of southeastern Labrador has many rock outcrops and supports fairly productive, closed-crown forests. The climate is considered boreal and is moister and cooler than the Lake Melville area. Summers are cool to warm and winters are short and cold. The growing season is 120 to 140 days. Black spruce and balsam fir are the most common tree species, but hardwoods are commonly encountered. Raised bogs are characteristic of valleys in the area.
