A barren landscape of low hills with some flats and few, if any, trees. The Shrubland has many damp grass, wheat grass, short grass and bush plants. A moderate amount of oak trees exist in a single log block "shrub" form. Oak saplings (and apples) may be obtained from the broken leaves, but these saplings will yield standard oak trees if planted.
Passive creatures, notably Horses, spawn naturally. Vanilla Allium flowers spawn here.
There is variation of this biome called the Thick Shrubland where the oak "shrub" is more plentiful.
