Coniferous Forest Climate and Location

The climate of a coniferous forest varies greatly upon the location. Canada and Asia have violent winters with dry summers. Winter can reach down to -70 degrees Farenheit on the coldest days. Sometimes in the summer the temperature can go up to 50 degrees Farenheit.

Pacific Coast coniferous forests form from Alaska southeast to Northern California which is the greatest stand of timber in the world. It is the densest, the tallest, and the most valuable. The winters here are very rainy and the summers are about 75 degrees Farenheit.

The coniferous forests get about 75-200 centimeters of rain per year.
