Which Climate Do They Like?
Temperate rainforests don't need the heat like tropical rainforests, but they do need the humidity - they are still RAINforests! They need a rainfall of at least 1400mm a year. The temperatures they need are pretty cool, the main thing is that the annual average temperature has to be between 4 and 12°C.
