Temperate forests are densely covered with trees. They may be broadleaf, coniferous, or mixed forests, depending on the area. Mature forests will have a canopy, up to 50m high, and an understory about 10m shorter. These biomes experience hot and cold seasons, though not all may get snow during the cold season. They are generally humid and have high biodiversity. In particularily humid areas, where forest fires occur rarely, trees may grow to well over 100m tall.

This one was really fun to compose and paint; lots of fun things to do with vegetation and light.
