The Northeast Region!

In the United states , the Northeast is well known to have a great climate. The Northeast has a unique combination of percipatation , type of soil , and varieties of trees that thrive in regions give New England its breathtaking fall colors. But the Northeast has way much more then just the magnificent forests to offer. If you were visting the Northeast some places with nice views are , The coast of maine , New Yorks amazing place the Niagra Falls , Also the the farmlands of Pennsylvania. The northeast attracts over millions of tourist a year. After a couple decades new industries developed , and the population of the cities began to grow. Alot of the people from the countryside of the Northeast all flocked to the fatory to the factory to take the industrial jobs. Europeans also were attracted by the job oportunites in the cities in the northeast.

The South!

The South Region stands out from the rest of the country because of the humidty there , subtropical climate and the lush, mixed forests that are common to most of its areas. The South is also closer to the equator which means that it is warmer then other regions in the United States that are farther north. The weather system in this region make it rain alot , mississppi can reciceve over 60 inches of percipitation annually. The parts in florida recieve 55 per year. So with the warm , wet climate , it produces thick mixed forests of pine and other trees. The South includes the marshy inlets of lakes and rivers of Louisiana called bayous. Marshy is short for Mangroves , they are tropical tree that grow in swampy ground along costal areas. Another reason why the south would attract people is because it has a very big variety of plant life and very rich soil.

The Midwest

The West land is mostly flat , and its soil is fertilized. Long ago when the glaciers deposited mineral rich materials there that promote the plant growth. The plants and animals that live in the soil die and decay. Humus combines with particles of weatherd bedrock to help build more soil. The midwestern climate , which has promoted soil building also favors agriculture. Most places receive 20 inches of precipatation annually. In the warmemr parts of Illinois , Indiana , and Iowa, corna nd soybeans are the major crops. Theese states are also among the nation leading producers of livestock. Down In the dry Great Plains the farmers down in the west are more likely to grow grains such as wheats and oats or sunflowers. Now along the northern part like Wisconsin has cooler weather which makes poorer soil. Many Midwestern cities such as Cleavand , Chicago , Minneapolis , St. Louis, Detroit, are located on the shores of the great lakes or some of the major rivers. Water transport was a big transportation in the Midwest .

The West region

The abundance of scarcity of water is the major factor shaping the west,s natural vegetation , economic activity and population density. San Diego , California , averages 9 inches of rain per year. Reno, Nevada , get only 7 inches. In dry areas such as these, the natural vegetation consists of short grasses, hardy shrubs, sagebrush, and cactus. the west generally receives adequate rainfall and contain rich deciduous and coniferous forests at lower elevations. In Seattle , Washington , for example , rain fall averages 39 inches per year. In the Costal region of northern California , forests of giant redwood and trees thrive. Hawi and Alaska, the nations two remote states offer another contrast. much of Hawii has a tropical wet climate dense tropical rain forests vegetation. A world apart is northern Alaska's tundra a dry , treeless plain that sprouts grasses and mosses only in the summer.
