The taiga, also called the spruce forest, is a biome that consists of spruce trees.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The taiga is one of the very few biomes to include spruce trees, and no other tree types will grow naturally. Ferns can also be found throughout this biome's spruce forests. Wolves and foxes can also naturally spawn in this biome.

In the 1.14 update, there is a chance that sweet berry bushes may spawn. Walking through these bushes can inflict damage to players as well as mobs, with the exception of the fox, and they can be harvested to obtain sweet berries.

There are also 2 other types of taiga: the cold taiga biome, and the redwood forest (giant tree taiga) biome.

Mobs[edit | edit source]

As with all biomes, excluding the mushroom island biome, it is capable of naturally spawning hostile mobs. Foxes exclusively and naturally spawn here and in the snowy taiga. Wolves also tend to spawn here, as well as in the forest or the snowy tundra.

History[edit | edit source]

Before update 1.7.2, a taiga biome would have snow on the ground. However, this was removed in the update, and the cold taiga biome was added.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • At y=128, it will start snowing if land generates, despite the biome registered as "taiga".
