A tiaga biome is a forest that can be found in the subarctic region, which is an area in the Northern Hemisphere that lies south of the arctic circle. In the tiaga biome grow many evergreen trees that lose very few of their leaves, such as white spruce, balsam fir, and jack pine.
A few broad leaf deciduous trees can be found in the taiga biome, such as birch, poplar, and aspen. These trees drop their leaves during autumn to save energy for the winter.
Conifers in this biome shed cones. If these cones are fertilized, then they grow larger. Only then do the seeds inside develop. After a time, the cone will harden and the seed will fall out. Usually, it takes one to fifteen years for the seeds to fall out.
