Bamboo Forest biome is a biome made of a forest of tall Bamboo Trees that overlook a flat, vibrant land with shrubs, bushes, and ferns.



A jungle temple naturally generated in the Bamboo Forest.

Bamboo Forest is a flat biome with ground made of large patches of both podzol and grass blocks. Tall bamboo trees (about 20 blocks high) soar above, while the ground is covered in grasses, ferns and dense oak shrubs much like other jungle biomes. Jungle temples can spawn here. In the version 1.11.2 ,dense oak shrubs seem to have been removed from this biome


Surviving in this biome is quite easy, despite some small difficulties. Finding food won't be very hard for the player, as ferns can give seeds just like grass. Bamboo can be crafted into a bamboo thatching for building or used in place of sticks. If one wants to make a bamboo forest their home, they will have to try to get saplings from the little oak trees and start farming wood. Other than that, the player may not find any other problem surviving in this biome.

Interesting Strategies Edit

This biome is a little crowded; A way to create quick space is to remove a small oak tree (it's meant to be a bush) and build a small cottage in that space. Wandering about at night is a very bad idea. Mobs can hide behind the trees or around the bushes, therefore ambushes are sure to occur, so it would be wise to not go out at night. Summary: If you want to build, you have to remove a lot of foliage.


  • In real life, bamboo forests are native to Eastern Asia, in countries like China, Korea, Japan.
  • In real life, newly grown bamboo can be eaten, though Biomes O' Plenty doesn't give the possibility of that.
  • Before 1.8 the Biome ID was 174.
