Food Web

The deer, squirrel, raccoon and grouse have a compitition for the plants. The plants are the producers and the animals are the consumers.

Human impact on the forest

Human populations are quite high in the temperate broadleaf forest due to fairly pleasant climatically and very productive of harvestable plant and animal life. Because the soil is excellent for agriculture, much of it has been cleared for this purpose. In addition, hardwood trees are valuable for timber, so these forests have been severely altered for thousands of years even before extensive farming.
