Plant life in the Mont Saint-Hilaire Biosphere Reserve is exceedingly rich thanks to the wide variety of natural environments and most importantly the mountain, with its intact mature forests. On the mountain alone, researchers have discovered about 620 species of plants. In other words, about one in five species across Quebec can be found on the mountain, in a total area of just over 10 square kilometres. Some types of forests, like the oak stands on the summits and the sugar maple-bitternut hickory stands in the mountain’s greenbelt, are designated “exceptional forest ecosystems” in Quebec.
