- About Us
Jack pine is confined to small scattered patches in the province, espically around East Bideford.
Being out of its range, it is stunted and inclined to be quite branchy with a crooked trunk. It grows up to 40 feet in height and around 8 inches in diameter with a narrow, open crown of many short, twisted branches.
It does not grow in pure stands in this province but is mixed with black spruce.
The Confederation Forests will provide habitat for all species, making a place to live, learn, and enjoy for the islanders who are here now, and those still yet to come.
Native Plant arboretum
Our Arboretum showcases more and more of our Island's native flora, providing rare seed sources, opportunities for teaching, habitat enhancement and a place to enjoy the splendour of the Acadian Forest.
