The moist deciduous forests are scattered throughout India except in the western and the north-western regions. The trees have broad trunks, are tall and have branching trunks and roots to hold them firmly to the ground. These forests are dominated by Sal and Teak, along with Mango, Bamboo and Rosewood.

Temperate Deciduous forests are those, which consist of predominantly broad-leafed trees. Species belonging to these forests drop leaves in autumn. The deciduous forests in tropical areas shed leaves when water becomes scarce. These areas receive an annual rainfall of 100 to 200cms in India. The deciduous forest can further be divided into Moist and Dry.

These forests experience an average temperature of about 26 degrees Celsius, with no pronounced cold or dry spells. Coffee, chocolate, banana tree, mango tree, papaya tree, avocados and sugarcane all originally came from tropical rainforests.
