10. Sherwood Forest


Sherwood Forest is a Royal Forest in Nottinghamshire, England, that is famed through its historical connotation with the folktale of Robin Hood. Constantly forested since the end of the Ice Age, Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve today covers 423 hectares (1.63 square-miles) remnant surrounding the village of Edwinstowe, the site of Thoresby Hall. The wooded forest of today is a remainder of a much grander royal hunting forest, named as the “shire wood” of Nottinghamshire, which in fact protracted into numerous adjoining counties (shires), bounded on the west along the River Erewash and the Forest of East Derbyshire. Sherwood entices 500,000 tourists yearly, including many from around the biosphere. Visitor numbers have augmented expressively since the takeoff of the BBC’s Robin Hood television series in 2006.

 

9. Giant Redwoods Forest


The Giant Redwoods of California are the loftiest, tallest and one of the most colossal tree species on Earth. They can breed up to 380 feet (115m) in height and up to 26 feet (8m) in diameter. These trees can live up to 2,200 years. The Giant Redwoods are an evergreen tree only found in California. The lenient, tough tree bark is up to 12 inches thick with a red-brown color. No tour of California is complete without seeing these massive Giant Redwoods.

 

8. Tongass National Forest


The Tongass National Forest in southeastern Alaska is the largest national forest in the United States at 17 million acres (69,000 km²). The Tongass National Forest is home to about 75,000 people who are dependent on the land for their livelihoods. Several Alaska Native tribes live throughout Southeast Alaska, such as the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian. 31 communities are located within the forest; the largest is Juneau, the state capital, with a population of 31,000. The forest is named for the Tongass group of the Tlingit people, who populated the southernmost areas of the Alaska panhandle near what is now Ketchikan.

 

7. The Inland Rainforest


The inland rainforest, also known as the inland moderate rainforest in the classification system of the WWF, is a temperate rainforest in the Central Interior of British Columbia. It is part of the Interior Cedar Hemlock (ICH) zone of the biogeoclimatic zones system developed by the BC Ministry of Forests, in the Rocky Mountain Trench. One of the richest parts of this wet belt lies 110 kilometers (68 mi) east of the city of Prince George and nearly a thousand kilometers (600 miles) east of the coastal rainforests. The oldest and most diverse parts of the forest are typically found on northeasterly aspect wet toe slopes, with Western Red Cedar (Thuja plicata) trees over 1,000 years old and undisturbed forest stands much older than that.

 

6. The Great Bear Rainforest


The Great Bear Rainforest is the name coined by environmental groups in the mid-1990s to refer to a region of temperate rain forest in Canada, on the British Columbia Coast between Vancouver Island and Southeast Alaska. Part of the larger Pacific temperate rain forest Eco region, the Great Bear Rainforest, roughly 64,000 square kilometers (25,000 sq mi) in size, was previously known by the government and the forest industry as “the Mid and North Coast Timber Supply Areas”. The Great Bear Rainforest is one of the largest remaining tracts of unspoiled temperate rainforest left in the world. The area is home to hundreds of species, including cougars, wolves, salmon, grizzly bears, and the Kermode (“spirit”) bear, a unique subspecies of the black bear, in which one in ten cubs display a recessive white colored coat. The forest features 1,000 year old Western Red Cedar and 90 meter Sitka Spruce.
