Land uses which are more often found “Up North”



As a regular visitor and now denizen of “Up North,” the following is my list of those land uses that tend to be found more often in northern locales of North America than in other parts of the country. This is not meant to imply that they never occur elsewhere, but these land uses just tend to be found more often Up North. Any additions are welcome. Enjoy!
