Since the human population in the Temperate Deciduous Forest grows every day, it's no wonder that some of the world's largest cities are in former Temperate Deciduous Forest. Privately owned lots in the Temperate Deciduous Forest are usually restored faster than government owned land. People who actually live in the Temperate Deciduous Forest appear to be more concerned about its future.

Early colonists (actually not that early compared to the Native Americans) believed the Temperate Deciduous Forest was a virtually unlimited resource. The Native Americans were among the first documented people to live in the Temperate Deciduous Forest. We know that they have lived in the Temperate Deciduous Forest for thousands of years. The Native Americans, literally lived off nature, hunting bear, moose, squirrels, and deer. (See "Animals.") They also grew many different crops. The American government often moved Native Americans from their homes to reservations. As the Temperate Deciduous Forest was destroyed so were the Native Americans.
