Cape Breton

Cape Breton Professional Review and Guide

"The easternmost tip of Cape Breton, this exposed headland shares its name with the entire island. Peat bogs and swamps dominate the poorly drained landscape, which is almost flat and thickly covered in glacial till, sand, and gravel. Rare arctic-alpine plants such as roseroot and fir clubmoss reside on the windswept cape, but, except for near Baleine Harbour, no trees can survive in these harsh, cool conditions, save the occasional thicket of white spruce."
