#1 Silver maple plantation

This woodlot was planted in 1993 for harvesting by the Domtar pulp and paper mill. The silver maple is native to the area with commercial and historical importance as a timber species—it is sold with red maple as soft lumber and was essential to forest recovery following the 19th Century logging boom up the St. Lawrence River.
