States L2 Landing Page Tabs

New Hampshire is in the temperate broadleaf and mixed forests biome and is the state with the highest percentage of timberland area in the country. Much of the state, in particular the White Mountains, is covered by the conifers and northern hardwoods of the New England-Acadian forests. New Hampshire also has the shortest ocean coastline of any state in the United States, approximately18 miles.
