 Jack pine, a boreal medium-sized conifer, grows in sandy, gravely, and dry soils. It prefers limestone or clay soils and is abundantly found around Lake St. John.

It is used in construction as well as for the production of paper pulp.  Jack pine is nicknamed « son of fire » because he possesses the special feature to only spreadits seeds when the cones are exposed to intense temperatures during forest fires.
