Vegetation: Dominating trees' eucalyptus, pine, fir, hemlock, spruce, giant sequoia, and cypress.
Description: Temperate evergreen forests are characterized by their hardy trees. Trees need to withstand sandy, rocky, and basically poor quality soil, occasional fires, droughts and cold weather. These forests are generally dominated by pine trees, but also support many other kinds of vegetation. Broad-leaf evergreens dominate forests in eastern Asia, coastal regions of New Zealand and Australia, and parts of Chile. Deciduous trees are found in evergreen forests in the Rocky Mountains. Sequoia's, which are the worlds largest living thing, are found in Kings Canyon National Park in California. Swampy cypress, giant sequoia, and dry pine forests are some of the different types of temperate evergreen forests.
