Acadian Plains and Hills


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 Ecoregion 59 to the south. Vegetation here is mostly spruce-fir on the lowlands with some patches of maple, beech, and birch on the hills. Soils are predominantly frigid Spodosols. By contrast, the forests in the Northeastern Coastal Zone (59) to the south are mostly Appalacian oak or northeastern oak-pine and the soils are generally mesic Inceptisols and Entisols.
