forest takes up one third of the world’s plant life. There are many different
plants such as the famous evergreens of the forest, bushes, berries, wild flowers,
lilies, and poisonous plants. Plants are a good food source for the forest animal
life. More than half of the animals eat the plants, (including small animals,
moose and caribou, etc.)
Obviously, there are A LOT of trees in the forest. There is also a large variety
as well. The famous pines are basically what make up the forest. They are every
The Evergreen is probably the most famous. The Evergreen gets its’ name
from what it does. Instead of leaves, it has little pine needles, and no matter
what, in the summer or in the winter, the needles stay green. The Evergreen
also has another unique feature, called a pinecone. If you have ever been to
the forest, you have probably see many of them lying on the ground. There are
two types of pinecones, a male and a female. The male pinecone is longer and
more thin, while the female is the exact opposite, being more short and fat.
The female pinecone is the one you would probably see on the ground.
There is another unique tree found in the forest, called the redwood pine. They
can amazing ly grow about 300 feet tall and age about 2000 years old! Fire can
be deadly or even critical for the plant life in the for the forest. If a fire
occurs in the forest, it could wipe out a lot of the environment and animals.
Then again, the fire could help out with the plant life. The ash remains, could
help the soil and help the growth of the trees and underbrush.
Most of the plants Brian ate in the book were raspberries. Berry plants are
how some of the animals live and eat off of. Such as birds and small mammals
rely on berries most of their lives. There are a lot of berry bushes in the
forest, and many different types, such as, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
How moose and caribou make their way is by eating plants from ponds and bodies
of water. They eat plants like lilies, and weeds that grow from under the water
and they also eat grasses they can find around the forest.
