Description: Deciduous forests can be found across north-central sections of the eastern United States, central Europe, eastern Asia, and parts of southeastern Canada. The deciduous has four distinct seasons. During these four seasons the forest receives up to forty inches (100 centimeters) of rain. The growing season in a deciduous forest can be several months long. The deciduous forest is home to a large array of plants and animals. Sometimes only one type of tree will dominate the forest. However, most commonly, two trees will co-dominate the forest. For example, maple and beech trees co-dominate the deciduous forest around the southern Great Lakes and in outheastern Canada. In some circumstances, seen in sheltered coves in the Appalachian Mountains, no tree is dominant. In these deciduous forests, which have been evolving for millions of years, dozens of different trees form the canopy.
