Manitoba's forest industry is the fifth largest manufacturing sector in the province with the majority of its products exported to the USA.

Manitoba is not a major player in the industry compared to other northern regions of similar size.

Manitoba's boreal regions are dominated by black spruce in the lowland bogs and fens, and jack pine, poplar and white spruce on the uplands.
