Wet Forests flourish along the windward slopes of the Coast Mountains. Curtains of moss hang from branches, ferns sprout from huge trunks and deer trails struggle through a tangled undergrowth of Devil's Club and Salmonberry. The temperate rain forests of British Columbia are as awesome as any forests anywhere.
These rain forests receive most of their rain from November to March and so are dominated by huge evergreen conifers that can grow through the mild winters. This ability to grow throughout the year makes them one of the most biologically productive environments on earth.
