The boreal forest of northern Canada is perhaps the best and largest example of a largely intact forest ecosystem. This forest is located in Northern Alberta near the town of Grande Prairie. The boreal forest is also the greatest terrestrial carbon sink. Canadaès boreal forest alone stores an amount of carbon equal to ten times the total annual global emissions from all fossil fuel consumption.
