Forest

Forests are mild forested biomes. There are a total of three variants in the biome family.

Description[edit]

Forest biomes have a large number of oak and birch trees across their terrain. Lilacs, rose bushes, and peonies can also be found alongside the usual dandelions and poppies. The trees generate densely, but not densely enough to allow hostile mob spawning during daylight like the related dark forest biome. Wolves rarely spawn in forests, making this the only other biome aside from taigas where wolves can spawn[Java and Legacy Console editions only]. Lakes generate relatively frequently, and lava lakes that generate in forests can cause wide-spreading fires due to the density of flammable trees. Like the jungle biomes, all forest variants may also generate unique, shallow lakes that are much larger than the typical small ponds that generate in most other biomes. Forest biomes can also generate in patches within plains; these patches are typically only a couple hundred blocks in size, making forests potentially some of the smallest biomes.

Forests are one of the most preferred biomes for beginners, as they serve as an abundant source of wood and don't have too many dangers aside from the usual hostile mobs. Tamed wolves can help fight against hostile mobs, making them especially useful for when players lack resources for armor. The density of the trees, however, can lead to obstructed night vision and can get a beginner lost very quickly.

Variants[edit]

The main forest biome has two additional variants, for a total of three different forest biomes, excluding Dark Forests, Birch Forests and their variants.

The Flower Forest variant has less trees than the regular forest, but boasts countless numbers of flowers across its landscape. Every type of flower, except for sunflowers and blue orchids, generates in the flower forest; in fact, allium flowers may only generate here. The vast numbers of flowers makes this variant an excellent source of dye. The terrain here is more erratic and mountainous than the regular forest, comparable to the wooded hills. Wolves do not spawn here, but rabbits can.
