Niches may be wide or narrow and may be influential to different degrees during the various life stages of a tree.

British Columbia - British Columbia - Climate: Because of the Kuroshio, or Japan Current, which warms the coast, and the adjoining mountain ranges, British Columbia experiences a variety of climates.
