Temperate forests are often found in eastern North America , northeastern Asia, and western and central Europe and on the southern tips of South America and Australia .

Rain rain

Rain, rain…..

The temperate forests around the world usually receive 75-150 cm annually.

I can grow this much

I Can grow this much….

Moderate climates and fertile sol provide a growing season of 140-200 days during 4-6 frost-free months , or 20-28 weeks.

Temperate forest biome project


On average, temperatures throughout the year range from around 20-25 degrees Celsius. Between the three coolest and three warmest months temperatures differ by no more than 5 degrees.




The first forests were dominated by giant horsetails and ferns that stood 40 feet tall

They contain about 70 percent of carbon present in living things

Temperate forests occupy about one third of the Earth’s land area

Forests have been worshipped in ancient religions


A temperate forest in California is home to the world’s largest tree, a sequoia, measuring 275 feet tall and 95 feet around


The largest temperate forest, in Scandinavia and northern Russia, has over 3.5 million miles of land covered in trees

Temperate forests are now becoming casual to civilization as deforestation increases



The two distinctive seasons are rainy and dry

Temperate forests are layered with plant and animal life with a canopy of taller trees and smaller shrubs and ferns on bottom

The temperate forest in North America is home to the Appalachian mountains
