The Northeastern American bioregion, located in the Northern America (Nearctic) realm, extends from the top of New Brunswick, Canada to the Blue Ridge mountains in the mid-Atlantic region of the US. The bioregion is predominantly made up of broadleaf forests and includes three ecoregions – Northeast US Coastal Forests [1], New England-Acadian Forests [2], Gulf of St. Lawrence Lowland Forests [3] – covering most of the Northeastern Seaboard. The total land area of this bioregion is approximately 44 million hectares. 

The Northeastern American Mixed Forests bioregion is part of the Northeast American Forests subrealm and is made up of three ecoregions: Northeast US Coastal Forests [1], New England-Acadian Forests [2], Gulf of St. Lawrence Lowland Forests [3].
