What is the largest forest on Earth?
« on: June 02, 2016, 05:53:49 pm »

Yesterday I learned that the amazon is not the largest forest in the world, I thought it was important to share with you too!  ;)



What is the largest forest in the world?


Its called the Boreal forest or Taiga Forest (pronounced Tiger) and composes 1/3 of all the trees in the world. Taigan trees start growing above the arctic circle where they take more than 50yrs to grow bigger than a sapling because they only receive sun light for 1 month per year. The taiga is found throughout the high northern latitudes, between the tundra, and the temperate forest, mostly from 52°N to 66°N, but with considerable regional variation and reaching 70°N in some areas. The Taiga generates enough oxygen on its own to regenerate all the oxygen for the entire planet.

Hyperion tree is an extremely rare tree at the moment because the tree is facing increasingly serious environmental degradation, partly due to the large number of visitors coming here, affecting its growth. and plant growth. Therefore, recently, Redwood National Park (Redwood) has issued a regulation, anyone caught standing near a tree can be fined 6 months in prison and $ 5,000. I really don't know why scientists don't use tissue culture to breed them
