Temperate Rainforest

A temperate rainforest is a coniferous or broadleaf forest that is located in a temperate zone and receives a large amount of rain. Vancouver Island is part of the Pacific temperate rainforests ecoregion and in some places receives up to 10 feet of rain a year. This compares to the average of around 10 inches or less a year in the Southwest deserts of the United States. The average rainfall here in Provo, Utah is about double the desert with about 20 inches of rain.
