Birch Forests are lush temperate biomes, usually generating near other lush biomes. There are four variants in the biome family.
You are watching: minecraft birch forest
Birch forest biomes are quite hilly, featuring a vast amount of birch trees across the landscape. They generate densely, but not densely enough to cast sufficient shadows to allow hostile mobs to spawn in daytime. Rose bushes, lily of the valleys, lilacs and peonies generate in these biomes commonly, as well as the usual dandelions and poppies.
Like almost every other land biome in the game, water and lava lakes can generate here, which may cause fast-spreading fires due to the density of flammable trees. Like forest, shallow lakes may also generate in here.
The grass and foliage color is turquoise, making them hard to distinguish from rivers, which often run across this biome.
No unique mobs or structures are found in this biome.
These biomes provide a source of wood and animal food, much like the main forest. Building shelter here might be frustrating, due to having to clean up the zone before and because of the reduced block palette that this biome offers compared to other biomes.
There are a total of four distinct birch forest biome variants.
Birch Forest is the standard and most common birch forest biome variant, with slightly hilly, forested terrain and normal-height birch trees.

Birch Forest Hills
Birch Forest Hills features hillier terrain than regular birch forests, being identical to them in every other aspect. It is fairly common due to its wide spread.
Birch forest hills use the same mob spawning chances as birch forests.
Tall Birch Forest
The Tall Birch Forest features birch trees that generate significantly taller than normal. This makes harvesting wood more difficult, but allows more wood to be collected in the long run. This biome features taller hills compared to those in the birch forest hills, making this variant less suitable for shelter.
Tall birch forests use the same mob spawning chances as birch forests.
Tall Birch Hills
Like the other hills biomes, the Tall Birch Hills biome has hillier, rougher terrain, along with the taller-than-normal birch trees of the Tall Birch Forest variant. The hills are steep in this biome, comparable to the mountains biome.
Tall birch hills use the same mob spawning chances as birch forests.
