Classification Comments: This group was drafted by Don Faber-Langendoen in March 2012 as a provisional concept for discussion with USNVC and CNVC partners. It was developed to account for the hemi-boreal patterns between boreal and temperate forests. Further review is needed before its confidence status can be confirmed.
