The Olympic National Park in Washington State is one of the wettest places on the planet. Although the evergreen forests may not look like anything like the Amazon, the area is classified as rain forest. As much as 95% of the National Park is designated wilderness.
Yes. Hawaii is the most well-known U.S. state with rainforests, but tropical rainforests also occur in the U.S. commonwealth of Puerto Rico (most notably El Yunque National Forest). And a less well-known type of rainforest, the temperate rainforest, is found along the northern Pacific Coast of the United States. Temperate rainforests are much younger than their tropical relatives. Most temperate rainforests are less than 10,000 years old, compared to the tropical rainforests’ millions of years. The soil in temperate forests are full of much more nutrients than that of the tropics.
Not in the continental United States, however, there are forests that may be classified as rainforest in Hawaii, as well as in the U.S. provinces of Puerto Rico and Palau.
