Tropical rainforests are very warm, have many trees, and decompose fast. Temperate rainforests are cooler, have less trees, and decompose at a much slower rate.


Other differences include the types of leaves (tropical rainforests have broadleaf leaves, while temperate rainforests have needles) and the age of the trees (tropical rainforest trees are young (50-100 years old), while temperate rainforest trees are way older (500-1000 years old)).
