Gifts from the Canadian forest
So powerful is the association between the maple leaf and Canada that many people would be surprised to learn that of the 115 species of maple trees in the world, only 10 occur naturally in Canada. The sugar maple is one of them and as its name suggests, it's by far the tree of choice for the roduction of maple sugar and syrup, one of the country's tastiest exports. The sugar maple is also one of Canada's tallest and most valuable hardwoods, providing strength and attractive grains for furniture and veneer. And there's yet a third gift that the sugar maple bestows upon Canada each year—its spectacular foliage. Every autumn, the landscape from Manitoba to Nova Scotia is transformed into a stunning canvas of brilliant shades of orange, gold and red—a feast for the eyes!
