Sugar maple--Minnesota; American linden--Minnesota; Yellow birch--Minnesota; Hardwoods--Minnesota
The distribution in Minnesota of three tree species (Acer saccharum, Betula lutea and Tilia americana) of the northern hardwood type have been plotted, using data from the Third Forest Inventory of the Lake States' Forest Experiment Station, herbaria records and records of occurrence from personal and other's field work. Maps are presented that give more detailed distributions than have heretofore been available. All three species show concentration in a belt along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Acer saccharum and Tilia Americana show the expected close correspondence of distribution in this belt and in a broad extension westward, almost to the prairie margin. Befula lutea thins out rapidly as one proceeds west.
