DescriptionAccurate maps showing the distribution of important tree species are valuable to foresters, botanists, wildlife specialists, land managers, and others. Although the general natural ranges for our principal tree species have been well known for some time, new information continues to develop. Commercial ranges, hoever, have not previously been mapped precisely, and artificial extensions of ranges generally have not been mapped at all. Fore these reasons, range maps of the principal forest tree species have been prepared for the Lake States (Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin), and that for balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.) is presented here.
