Eastern North America

The conifers discussed in this chapter are native east of the Rocky Mountains. In the north, the continent’s climate conditions are relatively uniform across the arctic and boreal zones that stretch from just east of the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic Coast; a few conifers that follow these zones over vast east–west ranges are included here. There are 32 range maps, 13 conifer habitat photos and descriptions, and 35 full-page species profiles in this chapter (with a few samples below).
