The woody plant species of Alaska generally can be separated Page 10 Left, map of white spruce (Picea glauca), showing maximum spruce-hardwood forests of the interior (I). Right, Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis), showing occurrence of coastal spruce-hemlock forests (C) of southeast Alaska. into two groups according to distribution within the State corresponding to the forest regions, as indicated in the List of Species under Contents. Many are confined to the coastal spruce-hemlock forests (C) of southeast Alaska.
The number seems relatively less also, because some tree species generally are shrubby and many are not widely distributed within the State. New residents and visitors will find some familiar species. Nearly all species of large woody plants native in Alaska grow wild somewhere in the lower 48 States. More than half of the Alaska tree species range as far south as some part of California.
