The hills of the Charlevoix region along the Saint Lawrence River in Quebec province are dominated by a mixed forest of deciduous trees and conifers. In 1988 UNESCO declared 1,800 square miles (4,600 km2) of this region a biospheric preservation site. The Quebec forest, boreal in the north and temperate in the south, covers nearly two-thirds of the province and has been exploited for lumber since the end of the seventeenth century. Today it contributes to the economic prosperity of Canada, which holds first, second, and third place in the worldwide production of newsprint paper, paper pulp, and timber, respectively. The Canadian forest has long been overexploited and has also been decimated by parasitic insects and acid rain, resulting in a considerable reduction in its total area. However, the forest today still covers almost 1 million square miles (2.4 million km2). Since 1992, Canada has been striving to introduce sustainable forest practices, and to reconcile the various environmental, economic, social and cultural demands being made in respect of its forests.
