Do cold climate forests take longer to grow?

    No, but their vegetation is different from temperate forests, and in relation to them, cold climate forests are smaller. However, the species located in cold climate forests, or tiagas, are resilient, and the forest canopy is very dense. The animal species located in tiagas, including deer, wolves and rodents, is also very well-adapted to the conditions. Tiagas receive between 12-33 inches of rain per year, and temperatures range between -65 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter and 20 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.

    Yes. Colder the climate longer it take for trees to mature. Tropical forest will yield 4-5 times more wood by weight per hectare compared to cold climate forest.

    Yes, because the cold temperatures slow down the tree’s ability to grow.  But this varies with the specific area as well as the type of tree.
