The process of glaciers scrapping the land resulted in bogs and swamps in valleys. Vegetation The boreal forest can only support one main type of trees. The trees which dominate the park are coniferouse trees. These trees can grow in thin soil, with the low tempratures and short summers the park offers. Much of the boreal forest was logged before the park was established. In addition fire is the main factor the forest depends on to reproduce. This is since black spruce forests rely on fire for renewal. The type of trees mostly found in the National Park are black spruce, balsam fir, white spruce, larch, birch, aspen and red maple. These trees are the typical to be found in the Nothern boreal forest. There are many open spaces of grass due to the fact there are trees dying and not reproducing at the corret rate. Grass and small shrubs are replacing the forests. LIVE BEAUTY Wild Life The variety of wildlife inside the park is very little but unique.
