The Pacific temperate rainforests ecoregion of North America is the largest temperate rain forest ecoregion on the planet. The Pacific temperate rain forests are characterized by a high amount of rainfall, in some areas more than 10 feet per year and moderate temperatures in both the summer and winter months between or 50–75 °F. In sheer mass of living and decaying material – trees, mosses, shrubs, and soil – these forests are more massive than any other ecosystem on the planet.
