Come Visit Coniferous Forest

COME , COME , && ENJOY YOURSELF WITH ALL THE FUN ACTIVITIES.

ABOUT IT .

  • The Coniferous Forest is a forest of Conifers (too much to handle, isn't it?). A Conifer is a tree that produces its seeds in cones. The Pine tree is the most common example. Conifer leaves conserve water with the thick, waxy layer that covers their leaves, also known as needles. The vegitation in the Coniferous forest is small in size, but large enough to feed the vast herbivore population. Most of these animals survive the brutal winters by migrating or hibernating.
  • Average Annual Rainfall- 14-29.5 in.


  • Average Temperatures in the Summer- 57.2°F


  • Average Temperatures in the Winter- 14°F



ANIMALS .

  • Most animals are herbivores, however some carnivores and omnivores are thrown in. Animals in Coniferous Forests include the red fox, moose, snowshoe hare, great horned owl, and the crossbill.


PLANTS .

  • Many softwood trees such as fir, pine, spruce, and hemlock.

FUN FACTS .

  • The largest Carniferous forest exists in a ring in Alaska, Canada, northern Europe, and northern Asia, in a ring in the Northern Hemisphere. This forest is called the "Taiga".

    Most of the world's commercial softwood timber, used for paper, comes from the Taiga.

    Coniferous Forests are the largest land Biome of the World.

FUN ACTIVITIES .

  • Hiking, animal-watching, photography, peace and quiet (away from the crowd type), and education (learning about different flora and fauna) are all fun things to do in the coniferous forest. ChaCha!
