  • Description: The area of Boston, Massachusetts is located in a temperate forest biome, which is identified most by its trees with leaves that fall during the winter. Within the city of Boston many of these trees can be seen, but within the city the land is dominated by an inner working of roads and buildings. The combination of beautiful trees and historical buildings makes this region a lovely area to ride a bike during the nice spring, summer, and fall days.
