Seasonal forests were a lush biome, which existed in the game prior to the Adventure Update. They were a lower density version of the forest biome only capable of spawning oak trees. They usually consisted of low plains and could be mountainous at higher rainfalls.
Seasonal Forests spawn with a temperature of 97% or greater, and a rainfall value between 45% and 90%. They are commonly found between forest and rain forests, and near plains biomes so they can be found as more open areas in forest and rainforest or islands of trees in plains. They are identical to forests, except their canopies are lower density and are only capable of spawning oak trees. They have a little bit of tall grass but sometimes more is present.
